STARR FINALLY PLAYS LOVE ME DO

December 13,2004

http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed ... %20me%20do

Legendary drummer RINGO STARR has made his own version of THE BEATLES' first hit LOVE ME DO - more than 40 years after the original version was released.

Starr was furious Beatles producer GEORGE MARTIN banned him from playing drums on the track in 1962, because he'd just joined the Fab Four and Martin doubted his talents.

But the 64-year-old's currently untitled new album with backing band THE ROUNDHEADS will contain a cover of the song with him providing percussion and replacing PAUL McCARTNEY on vocals. Meanwhile, AEROSMITH's STEVEN TYLER will play JOHN LENNON's iconic harmonica solo.

The album's producer, MARK HUDSON, explains, "Ringo is finally going to get to play on this track. We were in the studio and he told me he wanted to do Love Me Do so he could play the drums on it. I couldn't believe it. I was going to work with a Beatle on a Beatles track."
