Ringo Starr interview

2 Feb, 2012

Ringo Starr appears on Conan to promote his latest album, Ringo 2012. He also talked about how the Beatles got started on pot and his unconventional drumming rhythm, which was influenced by his natural left-handedness.

I was born left-handed. And my grandmother thought that was not a good sign, and so she turned me right-handed. So I write right-handed, anything else I do left-handed—golf, whatever. So I have a right-handed kit, but I lead with my left. It’s weird because I need time to do a fill.
