Why Lu… (no dwig) on Ringo’s kick drum head? Wonder if there’s a story there… No logos allowed?
This was Granada TV where they mimed to I Want to Hold Your Hand and This Boy and there are loads of photos from this and some other TV shows where the Ludwig has been taped over so as not to advertise.
It still happens today where logos can be taped over or digitally fuzzed out.
Gorgeous photo, thanks so much for sharing. : )
How weird!, i always wondered why sometimes you’d only see ‘Lu’ on the drums. Wonder why they were antsy about that, but didn’t tape up the headstock of the guitars etc .. you got me thinking now, was ‘Ludwig’ removed from all Ringo’s drums?
Sir ‘Lu’ Grade?
The “Lu” in question was originally part of a decal that was placed on the bass drum when it was purchased. Over time the decal began to flake off until it reached the state it is here. Not long after this, the bass drum skin was returned to the music store where the drums were purchased from and a new Ludiwg logo was hand painted on. Each bass drum skin after this also had the Ludwig logo painted on to avoid a repeat occurence of the “Lu”.
