The Smithereens Cover PS I Love You / Love Me Do with ANDY WHITE!

In 1962 Ringo Starr was asked to sit out on The Beatles first official recording session with George Martin. Instead, session drummer Andy White sat in on drums with Ringo on tambourine and maracas. A few years ago, mega-Beatlefans, The Smithereens, recruited Andy to drum again on these two songs: PS I LOVE YOU  &  LOVE ME DO, both songs celebrating their recording 60 years ago this week (9/4-11, 1962). Hear Andy’s handIwork plus Joe Johnson’s interview with Dennis Diken, drummer for The Smithereens – who like Ringo, sat out on the sessions featuring Andy White. Enjoy!
