Unseen photos of The Rolling Stones to go on display

Never-before-seen photos of The Rolling Stones are set to go on display in London.

The rare 1960s pictures of the band will make up part of The Stones And Their Scene, an exhibition of photographs by the late Eric Swayne which will run at London gallery Proud Chelsea from June 13 until July 28.

As well as featuring images of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts, the exhibition also includes photos of David Bailey, Anita Pallenburg, Chrissie Shrimpton, Patti Boyd, Jane Birkin and Catherine Deneuve.

The photos were discovered by Eric Swayne's son Tom after his father's death in 2007. Tom comments: "I discovered a beautiful trove of unseen images: Mick shot informally in Dad's studio, just test shots for a friend, and Keith and Charlie too – a whole series of them fooling around in Dad's flat with Chrissie Shrimpton... Some of the sweetest images are of Pattie Boyd, who Dad dated before she married George Harrison."

The Stones return to the UK for their Glastonbury headline set on June 29 and a pair of massive gigs in London's Hyde Park on July 6 and 13.
