Beatles legend Ringo Starr has revealed that he has no idea where the countless behind-the-scenes photos he took in the band's heyday are.

The drummer was known for taking backstage photos of the band as they rose to fame in the sixties, and snapped momentous events in the band's history such as backstage on the shoot of their 'Help!' movie and their legendary appearance on The Ed Sullivan show in the US. These photos are unlikely to ever be made public however, as Starr has lost his photo archive.

"I don't know where they are," he says in an interview with Rolling Stone. "I wish I did. There's been several moves and things happen."

He reveals hope of finding the memorabilia gold-mine however, recalling how another collection emerged unexpectedly recently.

"I found a box on my shelf and was like, 'What the hell is that?'" he adds. "And it was full of the postcards. At the time we were moving house yet again, and the secretary I had at the time decided to put them all in envelopes and put them in a shoebox. That's how I found out I still had them. So you never know – one day I may find another box with all my photos."
