Little remains unknown about the Beatles – they're one of the world's greatest rock and roll bands and have likely been photographed more times than Bieber
But now Ringo Starr
is unveiling more than 100 never-before-seen images of the Fab Four that he took during their '60s prime.
In a new e-book, Photograph
, the Beatles drummer reveals intimate pictures of the group, including black-and-white and color photos of Starr, now 72, Paul McCartney
, John Lennon and George Harrison during their first U.S. tour, their fabled trip to India to meet the Maharishi, and their last days together as a band.
In fact, Starr tells PEOPLE that he only recently discovered many of these of photos "in boxes we brought home after my mother died. We thought, 'I wonder what she's got!' "
For an exclusive first look at Starr's book, pick up a copy of this week's PEOPLE, on sale nationwide Friday. Photograph
