SECRET HISTORY OF THE STONES


When the Rolling Stones toured America in 1965, their tour manager, Bob Bonis, took thousands of photos of the band, most of which have never been seen before. This shot of Brian Jones and Keith Richards was taken the day the Stones wrote "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" at a hotel in Clearwater, Florida. Bonis, who died in 1991, traveled with both the Beatles and the Stones between 1964 and 1966. "These are intimate candids of two of the most important bands at critical moments in their history," says Larry Marion, director of Not Fade Away Gallery in New York, where Bonis' images are on display. "As you look through them, you see the birth of rock."
