At the recent “Who Shot Rock n’ Roll” photo exhibit at the Annenberg we thought we had seen all the “new” photos of our favorite English band, the Rolling Stones. But recently a lucky collector at an estate sale in California found a bunch of candid photos in an unmarked box of the boys on their first American tour in 1964.
Who took these rare snaps of the legendary band, just as they were about to break world-wide, is a mystery.
The good news is that the public can see them in an exhibit presented by Dilettane in collaboration with Apart Projects October 2 – 26th.
See Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and founding member/road manager, Ian Stewarts’ carefree moments around Southern California. Appropriately, many of the photos are of the band playing poolside; Brian Jones dives and swims, Mick sunbathes in his shades; Keith Richards keeps company with beer and cigs.
It’s a rare glimpse into the bands carefree world, before fame would take them.
