I saw that Ringo's 1963 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl three-piece drum kit was sold for $2.1 million. Probably a museum or something like that who has bought. If not Metallica's drummer Lars Ulrich has decided to change his own drumset. :D

Nice piece anyway.



At the same auction was Ringo's own copy of the White Album with the numer "1" sold for $790.000. Wonder if the buyer get it signed for that price?
