Drummer jokes just don’t apply to Ringo Starr. He’s the guy who’s had it all: founding member of the Beatles, he’s married to a Bond girl, twice inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Knighted by the Queen.

Heck, Ringo even sang some of the Beatles’ best-known songs, including “With a Little Help from My Friends” and “Yellow Submarine,” the soundtrack to an animated film of the same name.

On Wednesday night, Starr gave a very special performance of “Yellow Submarine” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, this time with classroom instruments.

Ringo led from the top on vocals and playing a tiny three-piece drum kit while the late-night show’s host took duties on a Casio keyboard, wooden block and kazoo, as Questlove showed his talents on clappers and, yep, a Submarine shaker.

The Beatles are history, but this Friday marks the 50th anniversary of their great album Abbey Road, which features Ringo’s “Octopus’s Garden”and will get the reissue treatment with a range of must-own packages.

Watch the “Yellow Submarine” performance on Fallon below.
