A revealing look at the earliest days of the legendary band, captured in a collection of personal, never-before-seen photographs—the largest single trove of such important rock images ever uncovered
When they first came to America in June of 1964, The Rolling Stones had been together for only two years and were almost completely unknown to U.S. audiences. They often played on bills with a variety of other artists, not necessarily as the headlining act, and often received lukewarm receptions. Many of these earliest U.S. shows did not sell out. But in the years that Bob Bonis photographed them, The Stones went from unknowns to one of the most prominent bands in the world.
Documented in these photos is this seminal period when The Stones made their transformation into the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band. And during that time, few were closer to The Stones than Bob Bonis, the tour manager for their U.S. tours between 1964 and 1966. While on the road with The Stones, Bonis, a passionate amateur photographer with a keen eye, an innate sense of composition, and a deep love for his subjects, snapped some 2,700 photographs of the band—a remarkable collection that until now has only been known to family and close friends.
Onstage, offstage, and behind-the-scenes, these stunning photographs show The Stones in an entirely new light—intimate and unguarded. Here are Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts, Ian Stewart, and Bill Wyman in casual moments, in rehearsal, in concert, in dressing rooms, on vacation, on the road. Funny, surprising, provocative, beautiful, these photos recall an unforgettable period in history and offer a fresh look at these soon-to-be legends at the beginning of their fame. This was the point at which early manager Andrew Loog Oldham began to position the band as the antidote to The Beatles—troublemakers dressed in leather and singing about the dark side of relationships.
Comprised of images unearthed after forty-five years, The Lost Rolling Stones Photographs is a groundbreaking portrait of one of the most iconic bands of the twentieth century.

The live shots are from several different angles at various venues and it also has several from vaious studio sessions.
I did some homework and told my spouse to buy me a framed print of the photo of Keith and Brian drinking by the pool with Keith giving the finger (also in Keith Richards book, Life) for Christmas at NFAgallery.com (the company that owns the photos)
I am sure several more Stones books will follow due to the success of Keith's book, but good luck creating something better than this. Special thanks to Alex Bonis (Bob's Son) who seemed to hold on to the photos all this time. You know you have something very special when some of the pictures are in Keith's bio AND Charle Watts gives it a seal of approval. Cheers mate! Can't wait for the Beatles version in March.
In other words, this book blew my mind. We see Keith Richards lounging poolside at a Florida hotel on the very morning after he had written "Satisfaction." We see the Stones recording at Chess Studios in Chicago and RCA Studios in Hollywood - one astounding shot after another. Any Stones fan who doesn't own this book is missing out on the Holy Grail. Even more surprising is the quality of the photographs. Bob Bonis may have been their road manager, but these ain't casual snapshots - these are the best portraits of the Stones I have ever seen. They obviously trusted Bonis totally, and his affection for the group shines through on every page. The book is beautifully organized, and the photo research is fantastic.
SEVEN STARS! (because we mustn't overlook the wonderful pictures of Andrew Loog Oldham and Ian Stewart...)
