Released on Valentine’s Day 2022 was the new hardcover book of photos compiled by Ringo Starr called LIFTED – Fab Images and Memories In my Life with the Beatles From Across The Universe.
“I am not writing this book as a Beatle historian,” Ringo explained. “I’m writing this book as a Beatle — and there’s only a couple of us who can do that.”
“I didn’t keep all these photos. These fantastic images came back to me in recent years from here, there and everywhere — online and off — and have somehow helped me get back to seeing my life with The Fab Four through fresh eyes. A lot of the photos in this book I spotted on my phone and on my computer and “lifted” them because they brought back so many fabulous memories.
“In recent years, I’d gather these Beatles photos that I sometimes barely remembered. After a while, I thought, how great it would be to “lift” these fantastic photos and some of my other favorites for charity and tell my true tales that they inspire about what the four of us — John, Paul, George and Ringo — went through back in the day. And the best thing is that it’s all for a good cause because the money is going to our Lotus Foundation.”
The limited signature edition at $495 has already sold out. A collector’s edition for $59 is still available.
