http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/11/entertainment/andy-white-love-me-do-drummer-dies/index.html (CNN)The man who played drums on the U.S.-released version of the Beatles' song "Love Me Do" died this week, his wife told CNN. Andy White had a stroke last Thursday and died on Monday, Thea White said. Andy White, originally from Scotland, played drums when the Beatles recorded "Love Me Do" for a third time in 1962. Ringo Starr played the tambourine but had been the drummer for the single that later was released in Europe. White is one of the musicians referred to as a "Fifth Beatle." The list includes White, Best, Stuart Sutcliffe and others. --- However, Ringo Starr who was the main drummer for the Beatles is still alive. I sincerely hope the thread did not cause any confusion. With Peace and Love!
