Ringo Wasn't On Recently Unearthed Pre-Beatles Recordings

(Gibson) Ringo Starr has issued a statement denying that he was the drummer on recently unearthed recordings by Rory Storm and The Hurricanes. As previously reported, tapes from March 1960 by Starr's pre-Beatles band were recently found in the cellar of Storm's sister's home. Scores of articles appeared last week indicating that Starr was the drummer on the recordings, but he says that's not the case.

"It's not me," Starr said, in a statement issued through his publicist. "That was done after I'd left to join the Beatles. I don't know who the drummer was but I hope that Rory fans enjoy it anyway."

Starr went on to cite two songs he did record with Storm. "The only two tracks I was on were recorded while we were in Germany in 1960, when we made a two-track acetate, and for those of you in the digi world that is a-ce-tate, of 'Mailman Bring Me No More Blues,' a Buddy Holly song sung by Lou Walters, and 'Fever.' I'd love to hear those tracks 'cause I don't have a copy." The statement was signed "Peace & Love, Ringo." more on this story
