Rock and roll curator of collectibles, Raj Prem, has declared the release of a news series of photographs that give better understanding of the private lives of The Beatles. The exhibition concurs with another milestone of the Rock and roll legends– more than half a century since the band’s first celebrated show and presence on the Ed Sullivan Show in the United States. As BeatleMania kept on growing, the group came into the universal spotlight, the craving to get more access into the Beatles’ lives behind the stage developed incrementally. Fans required more access into the private lives of the stars and wanted more information about them. Personalities like photographic artist Robert Freeman helped make this fan wish become reality by getting close access into the Beatles’ world and exhibiting them with the most momentous pictures in the history of rock.

Without a doubt, musical opinions are some of the most subjective that exist, so all-encompassing statements about songs and artists are often hard to back up convincingly. There are a few, however, that are truly impossible to argue. One of those rare universally held opinions is undoubtedly that The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest rock and roll acts of all time. First, from a musical standpoint, a compelling case can be made as the band has created some of the most well-known and iconic songs the genre has seen. But it may be the visual aspect of the band that truly puts them above any other. The Rolling Stones set the precedent for how a rock band should conduct themselves. For fans, German publisher TASCHEN, editor Reuel Golden, and the band itself is releasing an unparalleled look into their fifty-year career in a collectible book titled simply “The Rolling Stones”. Complementing photos and illustrations from the band’s personal archives, many previously unreleased, renowned photo collector and exhibition curator, Raj Prem, has provided a number of legendary prints for this definitive book.
