Rock n’ Roll Gold: Lost Rolling Stones photos found at flea market

To paraphrase Mick Jagger, "They're only rock n' roll photos, but we like them!"

A set of never-before-published photos of the Rolling Stones was discovered recently at a flea market in Los Angles. The images, shown to the right and below, feature the Stones looking young and carefree as they lounge around hotel pools, smoke cigarettes, and drink beer.

Musician Lauren White discovered the 23 photos at a flea market and they are now on display at the Dilettante Gallery in L.A.

"Basically, a guy who runs one of the stands called me over because I 'looked like I would like rock 'n' roll'"—and he was right," White told the blog Cool Hunting. "I don't know what was lost in translation, however. He obviously didn't know what he had. To tell the truth, I didn't either."

The images were shot during a road trip by the Stones through Savannah, Georgia and Clearwater, Florida in 1965. The Rolling Stones line-up at the time included Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and early keyboardist Ian Stewart.

The show, entitled "Found: Photographs of the Rolling Stones" will continue at Dilettante until October 26th and then move on to Miami and New York.
