It's easy to imagine that Ringo Starr's closet is full of shoeboxes with old memorabilia, such as the photos that populate Another Day In The Life his newest book. The reality, however, looks a little different.
"When I'm in them, I just pick them up from the internet," he says. "I make others on tour when I hang out."
Ringo not only plays the drums, but also likes to photograph and likes to do art. He brings out these books – a mix of coffee table decor and memoirs – for charity, and all have the feel of a scrapbook with funny notes on the edge. Another Day In The Life contains over 500 photographs, a combination of images taken by Ringo and parts taken from the Beatles' archives.
Ringo spoke with Rachel Martin of NPR about his new book, including the return to the Plaza Hotel 50 years after the Beatles first visit, smoking cigars with George Harrison at the film premiere of A Hard Day & # 39; s Night and the story behind the album cover of Abbey Road .
