Ringo's Photograph Premier
31 Oct 2013
Ringo Starr unveiled his new PHOTOGRAPH
limited edition book and prints set in Hollywood last Wednesday, 23rd
October. Guest speakers Dave Grohl and Steve Gorman paid tribute to Ringo the drummer, while photographer Henry Diltz praised his camerawork.
‘I’ve spent my whole life paying tribute to or ripping off Ringo.’ – Steve Gorman
Ringo’s photography was given the star treatment it deserves, with images displaying on a cinema screen behind the speakers, and a framed set of artist-signed prints.
'With the camera you're trying to capture that moment in time. It’s the same with music – you're trying to capture that moment on tape so it lives forever.’ – Dave Grohl
Following the morning’s presentation at ArcLight cinema, Ringo performed an exclusive showcase at SIR ahead of his tour with his All-Starr Band. The group then gave a press conference for guests and invited media, in which Ringo spoke about his new photographic memoir.
‘I've been asked to do my autobiography, but most publishers are really only interested in eight years. I had a life before I joined The Beatles, and I've had one after I left. There would be five volumes before I got into The Beatles! I thought this was a better way to do it.’ – Ringo Starr
