The Bob Bonis Archive at Andaz West Hollywood

In 1975, Keith Richards famously threw a TV off the balcony of Room 1019 at the Andaz West Hollywood on the Sunset Strip in L.A. – helping to cement the monikers “Riot Hyatt” and “Riot House” for this legendary rock-and-roll infused hotel.

Now, Keith, along with fellow original Stones Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Brian Jones are making a re-appearance (in photographic form) along with such other music luminaries as The Beatles’ John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, and even James Brown, in the unveiling of the fine art photographic exhibition “The Bob Bonis Archive At Andaz West Hollywood”, featuring rarely exhibited and many never-before-available photographs of The Beatles and Rolling Stones from the early days of The British Invasion period of rock history.

The exhibition opens with a public preview on Wednesday, September 16, at 7 pm to 9 pm, and, yes, hors d’ouevres and passed drinks will be served.

A curated selection of limited edition fine art photographs of these superstars, taken by Beatles and Rolling Stones 1964 – 1966 U.S. Tour Manager Bob Bonis, will be unveiled at Andaz West Hollywood in an exhibition that will last through December as part of the hotel’s ongoing art exhibition program.

The exhibition is presented by The Bob Bonis Archive in association with Gallery Schuster, through the courtesy of Andaz West Hollywood.
