Photograph taken by Ringo Starr of high school friends peering out of Chevrolet is reconstructed 50 years on as group is reunited.
Nearly fifty years may have passed, but the smiles and excitement remain the same between five Beatles fans who have been reunited to recreate a now- iconic shot taken by Ringo Starr five decades ago.
The friends were photographed by the drummer after they skipped school to see the Fab Four during their first trip to the US in 1964.
But they had no idea the photo existed until a search began after Starr, 73, wrote in his new book, ‘Photograph’ how much he would like to know who the teenagers were in the Chevrolet Impala who he snapped with his personal camera when they drew up next to his limousine.
And now their teen dreams of Beatlemania are about to be revisited as next month Starr has invited them to Las Vegas, Nevada, to watch his concert and meet him after the show. [x]
did anyone else notice the creepy guy in the back seat behind everyone else?
Dat creepy guy!
