    Actor, star of the Prisoner, was also a drummer. I didn't know that. Here is a clip of a movie he was in playing. Said he was miming to a track with Joe Morello playing.

    ...and that was Richard Attenborough, of "The Great Escape" fame (among other movies) sitting behind that guy.
    Pretty good solo! Never knew he could play.

    Loved The Prisoner. I need to watch Danger Man and Ice Station Zebra, when I can find the time.

    Trixons were big sellers in Britain back in those days. I think they were less expensive to import than American drums. They sound good in that movie clip.

    That whole movie was a trip. I watched it years ago, either on CD or streaming.
