Ringo Starr’s latest book is a colorful literary chronicling his music career and standout fashion sensibility.
Titled “Beats & Threads,” the 312-page tome features photos of the legendary Beatle’s drum kits and “era-defining” fashion over 70 years.
On sale through the publishing division of Julien’s Auctions, the book has a list price of $80 — with autographed limited editions selling upwards to $750.
The Los Angeles-based auction house said in a press release the book features “nearly 300 shimmering images capturing iconic and many never-before-seen intimate moments of Ringo’s illustrious life and career, along with the drum icon’s warm memories told in his own words.”
Proceeds from “Beats & Threads” will be donated to the Lotus Foundation, a charity founded by Starr and wife Barbara Bach which supports projects connected to “family and child welfare, women’s issues, addiction recovery and education.”
During the 2022 Thanksgiving season, the “Yellow Submarine” crooner partnered with Julien’s Auctions to sell limited-edition life-size statues of his signature “peace” sign to raise money for the same foundation.
The 83-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer blazed a new trail in music last month when he and surviving Beatles member Paul McCartney released “Now and Then,” the “final song” to feature all members of the Fab Four.
The AI-powered track, which employs the same technology “Lord of the Rings” auteur Peter Jackson used for the Apple TV docuseries “The Beatles: Get Back,” hit the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 during its first week of release.
