Ringo was a case!

We played with the Beatles a few times; once was in Paris at the Palais des Sports in Paris in 1965.
For convenience we used his drum kit and because of the early sound techniques the kit wasn`t miked up, so I had to hit pretty hard to get heard.

To my horror after a few songs I looked down, and I`d gone right through the snare drum!
Of course it was quickly repaired for the Beatles set and Ringo shook his fist at me as he went on!

Cheers to Ringo!!
