"I've been asked to do my autobiography, but they're really only interested in eight years," Starr says, "But i had a life before I joined The Beatles, and I've had one after I left. There would be five volumes before I got into The Beatles. I can't remember ever reading anyone's autobiography. It's just too much reading. I thought this was abetter way to do it."While searching through his old photographs he came across a picture of a group of kids in a car outside of JFK Airport after The Beatles had landed on US soil on February 7, 1964. Ringo remembers taking the photo,
After launching the book Starr was curious to see who these kids and who he called "The Mystery Man" in the background were so he let out a little hunt for them. All of them were found living on the East Coast. Starr does not want to reunite with them and says he just wants to have that one memory when everyone was having the time of their lives.
"I think it's a much better way because you'll tell the story and you have a page to write and then you have a picture, so this is the best way for me.The following photographs are all taken by Ringo Starr or by using Ringo's camera.
