Ringo Starr, “Mighty” Max Weinberg, Stewart Copeland, Pearl Jam's Matt Cameron, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith, Iron Maiden's Nicko McBrain, along with more than 100 other musicians, have joined forces for a new cover version of the Beatles' “Come Together” to help end world hunger.
Rolling Stone reported, “The 'Drum Together' clip was organized by WhyHunger, and along with Starr, Weinberg, and Cameron, it features drummers like Jim Keltner, Steve Gadd, Cindy Blackman Santana, and 11-year-old prodigy Nandi Bushell. While a massive coalition of percussionists (including an orchestra timpanist) create the base for this epic rendition of 'Come Together,' the meticulously stitched-together performance also features an array of other musicians from guitarists and pianists to trombonists and trumpeters.”
Ringo said in a statement: “We all can agree that no kid should be hungry, and everyone should have access to nutritious food. This is a great cause that I’ve supported in the past and a great track — one of my favorite Beatles songs. So when Jim Keltner asked me to join all these other drummers I was happy to.”
