Unseen Photos of the 1965 Rolling Stones

An exhibition at Los Angeles’ Dilettante gallery showcased 23 rare photographs capturing candid moments of the Rolling Stones on their 1965 American tour. The photos that make up ‘Found: Photographs of the Rolling Stones’ were only recently discovered in an unmarked box at a Southern California estate sale. The exhibit marks the first time these images have been shown to the public.

Shot in Savannah, Ga., and Clearwater, Fla., in the spring of 1965, the pictures show the now legendary rock group in their youth, relaxing as the British Invasion of rock swept the States.

Ronnie Wood Art Exhibition: Rolling Stones Guitarist Portraits Include Mick Jagger, Keith Richards

There’s more to Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood than meets the eye. The 64-year-old rocker is quite the painter. His latest exhibition, titled “Faces, Time and Places,” is currently on display in New York City.

“Lots of musicians happen to be artists because you find, especially if you’re a Gemini like me, that you’re blessed with two things: music and art,” the musician said at the exhibition’s Monday opening, CBS reported.

His work is being presented by the Symbolic Collection at 498 Broome Street. The exhibition is open through June 30. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Sunday, Cliché magazine reported. The exhibit includes portraits of Wood’s Rolling Stones bandmates, Muhammad Ali and Al Pacino.
