As the paper notes, "Except for the loss of tree life, Harrison likely would have been amused at the irony."

Ringo Starr Shares Never-Before-Seen Photos of The Beatles

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 and Britney combined.

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.

Capturing the Beatles' casual, off-duty moments never felt like work for Henry Grossman.

"We were friends," says the former photographer for both Life and PEOPLE, now 76. "I almost didn't know them as performers."

His new 500-page photo book, Places I Remember, features nearly 1,000 never-before-seen photos taken at the height of the band's fame, between 1964 and 1968. Why did it take him so long to share?

"I had pictures I didn't know had never been seen," says Grossman.
