    Member of The Beatles Ringo Starr and his first wife, Maureen, 21, pose with their son, Jason Starkey, in London's Queen Charlotte's Hospital, England, on Aug. 23, 1967. The couple's first son, Zak, was born Sept. 1965.

Their songs rocked both sides of the Atlantic and attracted millions of fans - and, in particular, a lot of young women, who believed that they were absolute stars.

    Some fangirls were lucky enough to meet their favourite musicians, and some even managed to bind their lives to the guys from Liverpool — some for months, some for decades, and some for life.
