A good friend of mine Lynn Easton was the drummer on that song with the Kingsmen. They were in their teens when they recorded it here in Portland, Oregon. Richie, the singer, had just had his braces tightened the day before and his mouth hurt.
I've seen Lynn's gold record on the wall, and he still has the original drum set. He also has drums of all kinds including a native american ceremonial drum. He's a great guy and a real character! His son and family are good eggs, too.
The Kingsmen had a lawsuit for copyright infringement against the producers (etc.) of Animal House because they used the song without any permission. The Kingsmen won.
Sad, but "Richie" passed away in Seattle about a year ago from cancer. He happened to have been a good friend of a really close friend of mine up there. Funny how circles interconnect.
Hugs and tunes
PS We all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine ..... I just had to get that tune into your heads
