Few were closer to the Rolling Stones during their transformation into the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band than Bob Bonis, the tour manager for their U.S. tours between 1964 and 1966.  While on the road with the Stones, Bonis snapped some 2,700 photographs of the band, which have been  collected in a new book by author Larry Marion, The Lost Rolling Stones Photographs.
