Ringo Starr to reveal unseen Beatles pictures in new book 'Photograph'
The e-book will be released on June 12 ahead of a physical release in December
Photograph will be released as an e-book on Apple's iBookstore on June 12 and will coincide with Ringo: Peace & Love, a Grammy Museum exhibit on Starr. A physical version of the book will be released in December and features pictures of Starr alongside bandmates Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison as they rose to fame in Liverpool. The e-book will come complete with commentary recorded by the drummer. Speaking about the book in a statement, Starr says: "These are shots that no one else could have."
Emeli Sande recently broke The Beatles UK chart record for the most consecutive weeks in the Top 10 for any album. The Scottish singer's debut album, 'Our Version Of Events', stayed inside the Official UK Album Chart Top 10 for a staggering 63 weeks in total, ever-present since its release in February last year (2012). She overtakes The Beatles who remained in the Top 10 for 62 weeks with 'Please Please Me' between 1963 and 1964.
Earlier this year, the door from Paul McCartney's childhood home fetched as much as £5,000 when it went up auction in Gloucestershire. The door was from 20 Forthlin Road, Allerton, Liverpool, where McCartney lived from 1955-1964 and learned to play guitar, piano, drums and the trumpet.
