Ringo Starr Releases 'Photograph' Book in Lavish Deluxe Edition
 - Tuesday, October 22, 2013

A few months ago, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr collected some of his personal pictures for the e-book Photograph. Now, that book is being printed in a limited edition physical version, but it won't come cheap. It's due out on November 22 throughGenesis Publications.

Bound with leather and featuring gold foil, the tome costs a whopping £345 ($581.91). The books are hand-numbered, with each one signed by Ringo himself. Those who are considering forking out the cash for the book can console themselves by knowing that the money goes to a good cause, since Ringo is donating all of his royalties to the Lotus Foundation. It's available to pre-order here. Photograph features more than 250 rare and never-before-seen images, which chronicle Ringo's early life, his time in the Beatles, and more. Starr said in a statement, "I love pictures put together, showing different times of your life. At the time, I never thought that there would be a whole book of my photographs."

The Beatles' seminal song turns 50 this week
 - Monday, October 21, 2013

Some revolutions have been hatched in neighborhood pubs; others in the streets. Fifty years ago this week, in a downstairs basement in London, Beatles John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote "I Want to Hold Your Hand." They recorded it the next day. While they hoped it would reach No. 1 on the charts, neither artist dreamed it would become the seminal song of a generation.

Unmade films

During the 1960s, there were many ideas pitched for films, but these were either rejected or else never saw the light of day; such projects included A Talent for Loving, a Western film written byRichard CondonShades of a Personality; film versions of The Lord of the Rings and The Three Musketeers starring the group (Richard Lester, who directed the group's first two movies, directed a version of The Three Musketeers in 1973), and a script by playwright Joe Orton called Up Against It.]
