Just when you thought you had seen every picture ever snapped of The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, along comes the Bob Bonis Archive.
Bob who? Classic rock historians probably know the name from early U.S. tours by The Stones and The Beatles. Bonis worked as tour manager for both bands. What’s just now coming to light are thousands of photographs the road warrior snapped of the budding rock stars.
3,500 photos to be exact, which will go on display at New York City’s Not Fade Away Gallery.
Described as depicting “a private, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the early days of rock ‘n’ roll,” the photos reveal the more candid moments of the days in the life of the two bands that heralded the famed “British Invasion” of the early ‘60s.
