16 MAGAZINE ran this rare shot of a bearded Ringo in the summer of '66, a full year before all the Fab Four sported facial hair for SGT PEPPER. Beatles expert Eddie Deezen points out that Ringo has always hated to shave, thus his pre-Beatles bearded look and then here. The teen mag pointed out that he quickly shaved it off. Can't risk offending fans now, can we? A beard might make him look OLD! Seen with Ringo is wife maureen and the two are being photobombed by a Mister J. Lennon.
