Raj Prem Celebrates Release Of Bob Bonis’ Rolling Stones Photos

Raj Prem notes that the 200 images are part of 3,500 unseen photos shot by Bob Bonis, who served as U.S. tour manager for the Beatles and Rolling Stones from 1964 thru to 1966. They remained private during Bonis’ life and stayed undiscovered in his home following his 1992 death. Five years ago, the photos received attention when Alex Bonis, Bob’s son, began to roll out 10 pictures per month over the period of two years. Purchased through eBay’s art and collectibles store, the photos run from $175 for 11 by 14 inch prints all the way up to $625 or higher for 20 by 24 inch prints. They are bought outright rather than via auction, with 10% of the proceeds benefitting the Grammy Foundation, the Grammy Museum, and additional similar organizations. The Grammy Museum has decided to provide a certificate of authenticity with the limited-edition prints, a move that Prem believes can increase the value of the pictures and make them valued at more than their selling price.
