LONDON (Reuters) – A series of black-and-white photographs dating back to the Rolling Stones’ first concert tour in 1963 will be seen by the public for the first time when they go on display in east London this month.

They capture the humble beginnings of a band that would become a household name around the world, and include a picture of the musicians getting money together for a cab fare and a tiny crowd waiting in the rain before they and other acts on the tour went on stage in Cardiff

“We were just climbing out of World War Two and there were certain people who were kind of leaders in finding a new way, a new culture to go forward. And they were one of them.”

“(People) want the – ‘we smashed the hotel up and had a chain of 16-year-olds waiting outside the door’,” he said. “It wasn’t like that at all. It was a serious man doing a serious job and getting a recording done.”

“We went to the theatre. No, no press, no other camera people, no access-all-areas badges or anything of that sort. I had completely free rein and they were completely natural. They weren’t posing or looking for publicity of any sort.”

Coral’s pictures go on display in an exhibition called “Black & White Blues – Where it all Began” at The Curtain in east London from Nov. 18 to Dec. 2.
