"I love this shot of John and George listening to a tape. Look at the size of the damn thing! It's a little player and they've plugged it into a radio. It wasn't all great sound in those days; you just got the best that you could." Ringo Starr

Breakfast in the middle of the jungle, from Ringo's book "Photograph" (http://RingoPhotoBook.com/)
"I was in hospital visiting Maureen and Jason, who’d just been born. When I was there, I got two messages: one from John and one from George. They said, ‘We’ve just seen this guy, Maharishi, doing a seminar in the Hilton,’ and, ‘You’ve got to see him!’ So we went to Wales and met Maharishi. While we were on that trip, Brian died, so we came back.
The following year, we went to visit Maharishi’s ashram in India. There are lots of other pictures, taken by other people, but that’s a line-up of Jane, Paul, John, Cynthia and Maureen. I wasn’t there for too long – just for a couple of weeks. We had to get back because we’d just had a baby, and that was enough time to be away from him. It was an incredible trip, though. I thank Maharishi to this day; he gave me a mantra that I can still use." Ringo Starr

'We made some incredible music. It’s great how well it holds up. The songs are still relevant; the kids are listening to the music today. It worked. And there were many, many magic moments, when it really worked. When you’re together, the band is together and the audience is together, it creates a magic moment. It’s a spiritual moment.' Ringo Starr
We are running a mini-serialisation of Ringo's new book "Photograph" over the next week to show some of the incredible photographs that Ringo took during his life in The Beatles.
The images are a unique perspective on his life and the band that could never be captured from the outside.
This first image was taken at Abbey Road studios in 1964.
