Ringo Starr - Ringo Starr's Photo Fans Come Forward

The teenage fans Ringo Starr photographed during The Beatles' first U.S. tour in 1964 have come forward and revealed they were suspended from school for skipping class in a bid to meet the Fab Four.

The drummer featured a never-seen-before black and white shot he took of five teens in a car in Florida in his new coffee table book, titled Photography, and urged readers to help him track down the kids.

He wrote, "It's just a great shot. They're looking at us, and I'm photographing them."

Now the stars of the snap - Bob Toth, Gary Van Deursen, Suzanne Rayot, Arlene Norbe Ressler, Charlie Schwartz and Matt Blender - have come forward to reveal that the day in question has stayed with them for 50 years.

Toth tells the MailOnline, "The principal certainly suspended me for three days as soon as we got back to school.

"The story didn't even make it into the yearbook because he didn't want to look like he was encouraging kids to cut school... It's kind of nice to have something legitimise the story we've all told on and off over the years."
