About Last Night... "The British Are Coming" Opening at Not Fade Away Gallery

Gary Pini

Baby boomers finally got a glimpse of Keith Richards's penis last night when they packed the opening of "The British Are Coming." Never before seen photos of the Rolling Stones and Beatles lined the walls of the Not Fade Away Gallery (901 Broadway at 20th Street). All the shots were taken by amateur photographer Bob Bonis, a tour manager for both groups from 1964 to 1966, including the one of the Stones' guitarist taking a leak in an abandoned sink and a very young and topless Mick Jagger reading the back of a Bob Dylan album. When Bonis passed away, his son decided to exhibit and sell them in editions of 50. They are a very candid, behind-the-scenes look at two legendary bands on tour and well worth the trip to this inaugural exhibit for the gallery. We ran into Woodstock promoter Michael Lang who confirmed that he is hoping to put together a 40th anniversary concert in Central Park on August 15 and laughed when we asked if the re-united Limp Bizkit -- who took most of the blame for the rioting at Woodstock '99 -- were going to perform.
