    11" x 14" print (the image size is 8" x 12" plus a white border) in a hand-numbered edition of only 250 prints. ONCE AN EDITION SELLS OUT IT WILL NEVER BE REPRINTED!

    The Rolling Stones US tour manager, Bob Bonis, took this photograph of Mick Jagger sitting on the diving board at the Manger Town and Country Motor Lodge in Savannah, Georgia on May 5th, the day before he and the other Rolling Stones traveled to Clearwater, Florida to perform at Jack Russell Stadium. The night of that show Keith would write "the riff heard around the world" that would change the course of rock and roll history- the cornerstone of the song that would become the signature song for the "greatest band in rock and roll," to this day. According to Keith Richards, in his autobiography, LIFE, he awoke in the middle of the night and, still more than half asleep, grabbed his cassette recorder and played the riff that had come to him in his dream and sang the words "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" into the microphone before falling back asleep, forgetting to turn off the recorder. He awoke the next morning, and seeing the tape had run out on his recorder, rewound it and heard that riff (that would change rock and roll forever) followed by 40 minutes of him snoring. Later that afternoon, he says, Mick penned the rest of the lyrics by the pool of the Fort Harrison Hotel.

    This photograph was taken by Bob Bonis, who was the U.S. Tour Manager for both The Beatles and the Rolling Stones from 1964 through 1966. This is a Limited Edition fine art photograph, derived from the original negative or slide, and is printed on professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper by the master printers at Duggal Visual Solutions in New York. Thanks to his unequaled access and gifted eye for composition, Bob Bonis captured thousands of unguarded, candid and iconic photographs of the two most important groups in the history of popular music. The majority of these images have never been seen or published and most are available here as Limited Edition fine art prints for the FIRST TIME!

    These fine art photographs are custom printed to order and require a high level of expertise and intense attention to detail, all delivered by Duggal Visual Solutions in New York City. As these are not "off-the-shelf" items an order may take up to 10 business days to print and ship. Once printed each photograph is inspected to ensure a perfect print it is then hand-numbered and is embossed with the official Bob Bonis signature seal, as authorized by The Bob Bonis Estate. It is then placed in a rigid acid-free acrylic sleeve to protect it from fingerprints and other damage

    Each photograph is accompanied by a package that contains the following documents:

    • A hand-numbered and signed Certificate of Authenticity from The GRAMMY Museum attesting to the fact that each print is derived from the original negative or slide, and stating the size and print number you have purchased
    • A Congratulations letter from The Bob Bonis Archive
    • The story of The Bob Bonis Archive
    • The backstory of your specific photograph or event information
    • Suggestions on framing your Bob Bonis Photograph

    Watermarks: The Bob Bonis Archive logo that appears on the lower right corner of the photos pictured above is only a watermark and WILL NOT APPEAR on the actual print you receive.

    What Your Actual Prints Will Look Like: Your actual prints are custom printed on either 11" x 14", 16" x 20" or 20" x 24" professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper, depending on which size photograph you purchase. Each print has the image centered on the paper, with a white border, and is hand-numbered with your specific print number and the edition size directly below the image on the left bottom side as shown in the examples below. The official Bob Bonis Signature Seal is embossed in the lower right-hand corner of the paper.
