The Beatles star Ringo Starr cheated death when he was just a baby after a Nazi bomb was dropped on his street, according to a new book.
The drummer's native Liverpool, England was targeted in German bombing raids during World War II, and one explosion occurred just yards away from his childhood home, killing three of his neighbours.
Writer Neil Holmes describes the tragic 1940 incident in his latest tome, Liverpool Blitzed: Seventy Years On.
Holmes writes, "The baby who was to find fame as Ringo Starr was very lucky not to have lost his life that night."
