Casual snapshots from the Rolling Stones’ 1965 U.S. tour

These incredible pictures of the Rolling Stones relaxing during their 1965 tour of the U.S. were found a couple of years ago at a flea market in Saugus, California, by a musician named Lauren White. They date from the first week in May 1965. The Stones had played the Academy of Music in New York City on the first of the month and did a brief tour of the South before heading back up north to Chicago. On May 4 they played the Hanner Gymnasium at Southern College in Statesboro, Georgia, and on May 6 they played the Jack Russell Stadium in Clearwater, Florida. These pictures were taken right around that time.

To put it in perspective where the Stones were at this juncture, one month later, on June 6, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” would get its U.S. release (the U.K. release was later on in the summer). This is arguably one of the last moments that the Stones were not mega-superstars.

White suspects that the pictures were taken by a woman: “In a lot of the images, the guys are looking directly into the lens. It’s hard to get boys to be that vulnerable, especially in front of a camera. They are also sort of showing off. I think a girl is the only thing that could convince them to allow those kinds of shots. It’s hard to imagine a dude is evoking these intimate moments, but you never know.”

If you’d like to find a similar score, White says that her favorite flea markets in California are: “In Los Angeles, the Fairfax Flea Market, the Topanga Vintage Market and the Pasadena City College Flea Market. Rose Bowl overwhelms me. I also like the Alemany Flea Market in San Francisco.”
