Ringo Starr gave his drum kit to a teenage brain cancer survivor


The former Beatles star met with 17-year-old Alexx Kipp - who also suffers from Tourette`s Syndrome - at the Los Angeles` Hard Rock Cafe as part of a new partnership between the restaurant chain and the Make-A-Wish Foundation last week and gave Alexx a black and white set of Ludwig drums, before playing on the kit with him.

Alexx - who has been playing drums since he was eight - had wanted to meet Ringo for several years, and last year his family approached the charity to try and grant him his wish.

His father Charles Kipp said: "Alexx came to me one morning and he said, `Dad, I had a dream last night and I met Ringo.`

"This was before we knew it was going to happen. About a week later we got the call. I told him, `It looks like your dream came true.` "

Alexx`s next goal is to learn the Beatles hit `I Am The Walrus` and he was given some advice by Ringo.

According to the Los Angeles Times newspaper, Ringo told him: "I get the easy bit. I come, I say hi, we hang out, we have a bit of fun.

"In the band I was in, we knew when we`d done the take, because it just feels good. It`s like golf: When you hit that ball right, you know. You feel it - you feel the connection. And connecting is good."

The musical legend also spoke about his ongoing involvement with the Make-A-Wish Foundation - who accept requests from children with life-threatening illnesses and try and make them happen - admitting it gives him a different perspective on life.
