Paul at home, 1971

Is that drum full of sweaters?

Maybe pillows? Ringo popularized stuffing pillows in the bass drum for getting a proper “thud,” but yes, Paul is doing something similar. Google it — you’ll be amazed how many drummers still do this! Pillows are definitely the most popular, but rugs, blankets, towels, felt, foam, you name it. Sweaters would definitely work.
