Forget about Pete Doherty and the Libertines, as far as sex, drugs and rock’n’roll go, it just can’t get more iconic and glamorous than the Rolling Stones.

The ‘Rolling Stones: Against The Wall’ exhibition taking place at the Scream London Gallery, in the fabulous Mayfair district presents a unique opportunity for visitors to view an intimate behind the scene documentation of the Stone’s heydays.

Running from the 13th of May, the exhibition features some truly iconic snapshots of rock history by the likes of legendary photographers David Montgomery, Roberto Rabanne and Bob Gruen.

Iconic images by Montgomery include a young, naked and almost innocent looking, Jagger covering his privates with the Warhol cover for ‘Sticky Fingers’, in 1971.

Keith Richard giving his back to the camera with his hair pointing skyward and previously unseen images of the band on the infamous King’s Road at a Fish and Chip shop.
Montgomery is highly regarded as having produced some of the most iconic images of the sixties and seventies during his time at Vogue, having shot Andy Warhol, Jean Shrimpton, Terecence Stamp and Jimmy Hendrix.

Bob Gruen’s extensive body of work has seen the photographer capturing some of the most influential rock stars for over 40 years.
Gruen was presented with MOJO Magazine’s Honour’s List Award for his outstanding documentation of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Led Zeppelin, The Who ,The Clash to name a few.

A truly mesmerising blast from the past sees the ‘Rolling Stones: Against the Wall’ take you away to a wonderful time of history that celebrated the hedonistic pleasures of peace, love and rock’n’roll.
