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]
Thank you. This is why I never really pursued higher education although I want it so desperately. This is no way to run a country.
Everyone needs to see this! Germany also has free higher education so long as you make very good grades. As well as the other Nordic countries, Germany has a high tax also. I really wonder why this is such a big deal in America. The rich keep getting richer and the poor, as well as middle class, keep getting poorer.
Pay attention, Canada.
It’s too late to hit the eject button for me. I’ve already created a hole of debt to bury myself in. I don’t feel like I’m benefitting. I’m not really expanding myself through a college education. I feel like I’m just going in to get “satisfactory” grades in order to meet the requirements to complete my general education requirements. Maybe it’ll feel different when I’m pursuing a bachelor’s in the field I’m interested in. Or maybe I’ll lose so much motivation midway that I’ll just abandon this pursuit. Community college is cheaper, yeah, but it puts you in this state of mind where you feel like you’re not going anywhere. Ironically, the community college I attend’s motto is “From here, go anywhere.”
