Ringo Starr Shares Stories Behind Pics from His Photograph Book at New York City Q&A Event

Ringo Starr spent part of his day off from his current U.S. tour with the All Starr Band on Monday participating in a special Q&A presentation promoting his recent coffee-table book, Photograph.  E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt was on hand to host the intimate event at the Strand Book Store in New York City, which featured the legendary Beatles drummer sharing recollections about select pics that appear in the book.

Most of the rarely seen photos in the book were snapped by Starr himself, and many of the images captured his Beatles band mates in candid moments.  One shot that Ringo took in Paris in 1964 features Paul McCartney wearing a beret.



During the Q&A, Ringo recalled that McCartney liked to assimilate into whatever country the Fab Four would visit.

“Paul had this habit of wherever we were, he’d become, like, French [if] we’re in France,” Starr explained.  “And if we went to Denmark, he’d become Danish, you know?”

Another photo displayed during the event was a pic of his son Zak, and John Lennon’s son Julian as toddlers on a boat together on the Thames River.  Starr noted, “John and I would play dads and we’d take [our kids] out and…we’d do that dad thing.”



Photograph also includes quite a few images taken after The Beatles broke up.  One of the pics shown featured Starr with his good, and now late, pals Harry Nilsson and Who drummer Keith Moon, with whom he did some notoriously heavy partying during the 1970s.

“We were three great friends, and we spent a lot of evenings together,” Ringo pointed out.  “And we’re at a fancy dress party, I think, [in this photo].  Otherwise, God knows what’s happening.”

Photograph originally was published in June 2013 as a deluxe, limited-edition book, with each copy signed by Starr.  The wide-release version, dubbed the “Open Edition,” was released last month.  Accompanying the many snapshots taken by and of Starr are more than 15,000 words of biographical text penned by Ringo.

Proceeds raised by sales of Photograph benefit the Lotus Foundation, a charity founded by Starr and his wife, Barbara.  As Ringo explained at the book event, the foundation supports everything from “MusiCares to homeless people to battered wives to children with diseases [to] people with addictive personalities.”

Meanwhile, Starr also reiterated comments he made at a recent gallery event in London — that he hopes another similar book can be put together with photos that McCartney, Lennon and George Harrison took over the years that also could raise money for charity.

Starr noted, “I’ve spoken to [Harrison’s widow] Olivia and…to Paul also [suggesting that we should] find his photos of the day, and Yoko [Ono] can find John’s photos, and Olivia has started the search for George’s photos, and we can put another book out.  It’s all for a good cause.”

Ringo’s next show with the All Starr Band is scheduled for tonight in Pittsburgh.  The tour winds down this Saturday in Brooklyn, New York.  Check out all of the group’s dates at  RingoStarr.com.
