Ringo Starr Cleans His House, Finds A Ton Of Lost Beatles Photos

"These are shots that no one else could have taken."

Ringo Starr has resurfaced a set of lost Beatles photos, which he likely found buried under the mass of Beatles-related-items he is auctioning off later this year.

The drummer has apparently rediscovered over 800 pieces of memorabilia, including his drum kit and one of John Lennon's old guitars. (Reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: very profitable if you were once in the most iconic musical group of all time!)

Starr will be displaying the set of recently developed negatives at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The show opens Sept. 21, along with the release of his upcoming book titled Photograph which features 250 images of the band.

"These are shots that no one else could have taken," he said in a statement (before probably whispering to himself, "No one except a Starr").
