Photos of The Beatles’ and The Rolling Stones’ Early Days For Sale Online [Photos]
Bob Bonis, the U.S. tour manager for both the Rolling Stones and the Beatles during their early '60s heyday has released 175 photos for sale on eBay beginning yesterday. The shots include some classic candids of the band members, showing an unguarded side of them rarely seen.
As tour manager and friend, Bonis had unprecedented access to life on the road with two of the world’s greatest bands. His contribution to rock history is a magnificent collection of more than 5,000 candid photographs of intimate and unguarded moments – from a never-before-seen Rolling Stones recording session at Chess Records Studio in Chicago to the only close up photographs of the Beatles 1965 stadium performance in Minnesota.
Prints will begin at $175 for an 11x14 photograph (edition of 250), $385 for a 16x20 (edition of 75), and $625 for a 20x24 photograph (edition of 50). Each photograph is estate embossed, hand-numbered and printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archival paper. Once the edition sells out, it will never be reprinted. Prints will ship worldwide and are available either framed or unframed.
