Ringo’s drum to be displayed at museum

London: Ringo Starr will get a special honour for his 70th birthday—the gold plated drum he played on the Beatles` 1964 US tour is to become a museum item in New York.

The drum will be kept in the ‘Metropolitan Museum of Art’ as part of a special exhibition honouring his big birthday on July 7.

The ‘Ludwig Drum Company’ presented the instrument to Starr in Chicago, Illinois, reports a news daily.
