The lost Beatles and the lost Rolling Stones photographs – taken in the 1960s by their American road manager, Bob Bonis – were LOST for 40 years ... until discovered by his son, then acquired and exhibited by rock ‘n roll memorabilia expert, Larry Marion. Marion is recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on rock and music memorabilia, especially concert posters. He has worked with many of the leading auction houses, set several world-record prices for Beatles memorabilia, and written and designed sixteen catalogs of music-related memorabilia. Unearthed after forty-five years, the photos that comprise The Lost Beatles /Lost Rolling Stones Photographs (It Books, $29.99) form a groundbreaking portrait of two of the most iconic bands of the twentieth century. Funny, surprising, provocative, beautiful, these photos recall an unforgettable period in history and offer a fresh look at these soon-to-be legends at the beginning of their fame. All proceeds from the sale of books tonight will benefit The Grace Gold Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Miami Foundation. Grace’s death (from a falling brick in 1979) was the inspiration for Local Law 10 in New York City – and the resulting scaffolding that has saved many lives since. The Grace Gold Memorial Scholarship Fund now gives her a legacy that will educate and inspire writers and journalists who will be our future!
