Paul McCartney has a new album coming out in December titled "McCartney III" whereby he writes, performs, and produces all of the tracks. This this nothing new for him. We all know that he's played drums on both Beatle tracks and previous solo albums. There is a promotional video out for the new album showing him playing various instruments, including drums. I was amused, but not surprised, to see tea towels on each drum in the video. What struck me is that there is an image printed on each tea towel (maybe they're actually t-shirts). At first I thought it was an image of Ringo, but now I think it might be Mr. T from "Rocky" and "The A Team" fame. Maybe it's someone else. I've posted a still image. What do you think?

I copied it and rotated it so it is right side up and it sure looks like Mr T to me.

This is the closest I could find to the Mr. T shirt/towel.


A search for BA Baracus yields better results.

Interesting that the kit is set up right-handed.

It was widely accepted back then that Paul played the drum solo on the Abbey Road medley.Not sure if that`s been proven to be true or not.
