After unearthing a collection of lost Rolling Stones photographs, Bob Bonis’ work is on display again in a book entitled The Lost Beatles Photographs: The Bob Bonis Archive, 1964-1966.
The Beatles tour manager throughout the mid-60′s, these snapshots captured the band on tour in America, both behind-the-scenes and on stage. Bonis’, who died back in 92′, insisted on keeping the photos private but his son finally struck a book deal and now we have the pleasure of seeing the Fab Four through his insider lens.
