11 Questions With Billy Bob Thornton: No. 9

Who taught you to play drums?

In the mid ’60s, there was a band in our town called The Yardleys. They were like the Beatles to us. They were seniors when I was a freshman, and they had a drummer named Bucky Griggs who played a red sparkle Ludwig kit. I coveted that kit. He was like Ringo [Starr] … He taught me how to do a couple of things. My first real drum kit was a red sparkle Ludwig kit, just like his.
