In "Born to Drum", Barrell explores the extraordinary history of the world's most primitive instrument and the musicians who have made it legend. He interviews some of the most famous and revered and well-known drummers of our time, including Chad Smith, Ginger Baker, Clem Burke, Sheila E, Phil Collins, Nick Mason, Patty Schemel, Butch Vig, and Omar Hakim, who share astonishing truths about their work and lives. He investigates the stories of late, great drummers such as Keith Moon and John Bonham, analyzes many of the greatest drum tracks ever recorded, and introduces us to the world's fastest drummer, the world's loudest drummer, and the first musician to pilot a "flying drum kit" on stage.

No mention of Stewart Copeland or Ringo in the summary. I've been looking forward to reading from this book but now it seems a little dubious.
How do you know it's a drummer knocking at your door? :)
