Lost Pics of The Beatles & The Stones to be put on display in NYC gallery

I'm a HUGE fan of The Beatles. HUGE. I have a Beatles calendar. They're the background on my laptop. I'm reading their biography by Hunter Davies right now. I have over 2 gigs of Beatles songs on my iTunes. My cellphone's ringtone is "Penny Lane." I can relate specific events in my life to various Beatles songs. My roommate thinks I might have a serious problem. I think I do too.

Nevertheless, she risked the further advancement of my obsession by telling me about this wonderful, glorious, super exciting opportunity to see some NEVER BEFORE SEEN PICTURES of The Beatles. Oh, and The Rolling Stones. (Don't get me wrong, I love the Stones too, I just LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE The Beatles!)

Bob Bonis, both of the band's American road manager, took a bunch of pictures of both of the bands, performing and candid. After his death, his son discovered a shoebox filled with about 3500 pictures of the bands.

"In its opening exhibit, the Not Fade Away Gallery, located at 901 Broadway at 20th Street, will feature more than 50 of the 'lost' photos, some of which they shared exclusively with The Post."

My boyfriend, who is a superfan of the beatles, managed to track them down online, but they're downloads, not actual hard copies. Unfortunately, this is the only way they're available as far as I know.

I thought I was a huge Beatles fan, but my iTunes has less than a gig of their music, so guess I need to start hustling! I believe I have almost every song they ever recorded in my CD collection, with the notable exceptions of some of their Christmas releases exclusively for their fan club. Anybody know where they might be found?
