Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr joined forces with rock veterans Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend for a legendary jamming session on New Year's Eve. The rock veterans performed to a small VIP audience at a secret charity gig in Surrey, England, on Monday night (31Dec07), with tickets going for as little as $100 (GBP50). A source tells British newspaper The Independent, "The band was called Totally Abandoned for the night and obviously boasted a fairly impressive line-up. "It was very much a word-of-mouth thing and tickets were under GBP50. They sung mainly old classics, they were great."
