“Yellow Submarine” is the latest song to get the classroom-instrument treatment from The Tonight Show!
Appearing with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots last night for the late-night show’s “live week,” Ringo Starr performed the Beatles classic on a tiny three-piece drum kit, backed by a band of kazoos, woodblocks, xylophones, and shakers.
The set was even designed to look like the 1968 film by the same title and included animations.
Earlier this month, the Fab Four legend teamed up with former bandmate Paul McCartney on John Lennon’s “Grow Old With Me”. His latest release, What’s My Name, will be out October 25th.
“I sang it the best that I could,” Starr said. “I do well up when I think of John this deeply. And I’ve done my best. We’ve done our best. The other good thing is that I really wanted Paul to play on it, and he said yes. Paul came over and he played bass and sings a little bit on this with me. So John’s on it in a way. I’m on it and Paul’s on it.”
