Ringo Starr will appear on the 100th episode of AXS TV's The Big Interview With Dan Rather on October 2nd. According the network's announcement, "During the candid conversation, Ringo shares stories from his acclaimed career. He talks about the brotherhood of the Beatles, his fateful introduction to the drums, and so much more."

This season Rather will also be interviewing Rod Stewart, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kansas, Joan Baez, Buddy Guy, Kenny Loggins, Brian Setzer, and Dickey Betts, among others.

In the teaser to the Dan Rather interview, Ringo was asked about what he made of the legendary big band and jazz drummers that came before him: "People always ask me, 'Oh what about those drummers in (sic) those records. . .' I never listened to the drummer. I listened to the whole thing. And yes, I know the names, but it wasn't like I was listening for the drums. I was listening for the whole feel of the record."
