From the authors of Ringo Starr And The Beatles Beat and Ringo’s White Album, Ringo’s Abbey Road explores Ringo’s contribution to the Beatles’ 1969 masterpiece. At ease with his new Ludwig Hollywood drums, discover how Ringo utilised this expanded drum kit to leave his mark on Abbey Road, from the ‘swampy’ tom fills and rhythms of Come Together, to the time-shifting meter of Here Comes The Sun, Abbey Road displays just why Ringo Starr was the perfect drummer for the Beatles. Arguably reaching his creative peak, Ringo’s drumming is creative and expressive, characteristically ‘loose’ yet precise, playing with tenderness and angst [Something], playfulness [Maxwell’s Silver Hammer], abandon [I Want You (She’s So Heavy)], and power [The End]. Ringo’s Abbey Road contains the complete drum and percussion scores from Abbey Road, plus the Ballad Of John And Yoko/Old Brown Shoe single, released prior to the LP.
