It's safe to say Tatum Verbeck isn't your average 12-year-old girl.

You might remember Tatum as the girl who wanted to hold Paul McCartney's hand during his recent concert in Sacramento. Her dream came true when brought her up on stage!

On Wednesday, Tatum got to play hookie from the Beatles history class she's taking with her mom to meet her second Beatle, Ringo Starr.

The Truckee girl got to interview the famous drummer backstage while he was performing in Reno. How did she score the interview? She's writing an article for American Girl Magazine.

Like Ringo, Tatum is also a drummer. The two exchanged autographs before the interview was over. Smart of Ringo, because we think Tatum will being going far in life.
