The Lost Beatles and Rolling Stones Photographs: The Bob Bonis Archive

The Betsy Hotel, in partnership with Larry Marion, Director and Founder of Not Fade Away Gallery, proudly presents an exciting collection of rare images by Bob Bonis, US Tour Manager for The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, from 1964 to 1966.

The images were shot at a key period in the careers of two of the most influential bands in rock history. As US Tour Manager for both bands, Mr. Bonis has an unprecedented level of direct, personal access to these rising superstars, earning their trust and complete confidence during the early days of the British Invasion and Beatlemania – a critical point of their careers. During his tenure, Bonis took over 800 photographs of The Beatles and over 2600 of The Rolling Stones; iconic images of them on stage, backstage during their most intimate and vulnerable moments, traveling, recording, at press conferences, and even at home.

Bob Bonis (1932-1992) began his career in the music business as a talent agent at MCA in New York City in the late 1905’s and, through a series of fortuitous circumstances, went on to hold an extraordinary position at a pivotal time in rock history as US Tour Manager for both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for their first US Tours in 1964 and continuing through 1966. Sixteen years after Bob’s passing in 1992, his son Alex unearthed this time capsule of images and found rock memorabilia expert Larry Marion, who had a wide ranging experience with Beatles memorabilia. In homage to Bonis’ legacy and talent, NotFadeAwayGallery.com and The Betsy present more than 200 images from the archives.

Prints are for sale, as well as copies of two books, “The Lost Rolling Stones Photographs: The Bob Bonis Archive 1964-1966” and "The Lost Beatles Photographs: The Bob Bonis Archive 1964-1965” (Larry Marion, Harper Collins).
