THE BEATLES vs. THE ROLLING STONES - Morrison Hotel Gallery Takes on Rock’s Greatest Rivals In "Beatles vs. Stones" Online Exhibit

From the moment their songs crossed paths on the music charts and their planes touched down on US soil and launched the British Invasion, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones kicked off a battle between music fans that’s been raging ever since. Whether one is Team Lennon-McCartney or diehard Glimmer Twins fanatics, one thing everyone can agree on is that the sounds and images created by these rock and roll legends forever altered the path of music history - inspiring artists from The Beach Boys and Black Sabbath to Aerosmith and The Hives.

In Beatles vs. Stones, Morrison Hotel Gallery explores the parallels as well as the differences between the two greatest rock bands of all time with a web-exclusive exhibition on view starting Tuesday, November 23. We’ll revisit both bands wowing American television audiences, stripping down for a frolic in the surf (Beatles) or playing for a solo stripped-down fan (Stones).

From John Lennon and Keith Richards each showing off their uncanny ability to emanate the utmost in coolness while posing for a variety of shots in their solo photoshoots to the Fab Four mirroring a Mick Jagger pose in a parka, the exhibition does a masterful job of showcasing the style, talent, and playfulness that helped these lads shape the music of the 20th century.

The exhibition features images from David Magnus, Thomas Monster, Terry O’Neil, Stephanie Pfriender Stylander, Charles Trainor, The Vincent Vigil Collection, Robert Whitaker, and more.

Beatles vs. Stones opens November 23 exclusively at MorrisonHotelGallery.com .
