So what’s the story behind ‘Real Love’?
“The video was done by Kevin Godley (ex-10cc),” Tommy recalls. “They didn’t know if Ringo still had his Beatles kits so they hired mine. The deal included getting the head painted. Luckily my niece’s husband, Nick Toyas, is a graphic designer and he made an exact copy from photos of The Beatles’ logo head.
“In the video the kit wasn’t actually set up. It was kind of rolling and tumbling in mid-air, so the bass drum was spinning round. It was quite effective, but they took the spurs off and unfortunately it came back without them. I had to replace them, God knows where the originals are now.”
