    16" x 20" print (the image size is 12" x 18" plus a white border) in a hand-numbered edition of only 75 prints. ONCE AN EDITION SELLS OUT IT WILL NEVER BE REPRINTED!

    The Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts) arrive in America for the first time-ever on June 1, 1964, just a three days after their first album - England's Newest Hitmakers - The Rolling Stones - was released. After a well-received first US show in San Bernardino, California they played two very disheartening shows in San Antonio, Texas where they performed alongside monkey and juggling acts and country star George Jones to an unreceptive small audience. Their manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham cheered them up by surprising them with a trip on their four days off between shows to visit and record at Chess Records studios. Recordings from Chess records were actually the spark that led to the formation of the Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards grew up one street away from each other in Dartford, Kent, England, and, starting in September 1950, would have many a play date when not attending Wentworth Primary School. Even when Keith transferred to another school in 1954, their paths would cross again in 1961 at a chance encounter at a Dartford, Kent train station, when Mick had some American rhythm and blues records that he had mail ordered from Chess Records in tow, and Keith remarked, "Oh, yeah, these are really interesting." And so it began. Soon they were playing those records all over town, until the day they put two and two together and the singer joined forces with the guitarist-forging one of the most revolutionary rock duos of all time. Soon afterwards they would meet Brian Jones, who along with Ian Stewart were forming a band and enlisted Mick and Keith to join. Fortunately their US Tour Manager, Bob Bonis, accompanied them on this trip and captured some of the only photographs documenting this historic event and seminal moment in their long history.

    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.
