Rare photos of the young Rolling Stones, taken by their tour manager during their first years in the US, will be unveiled during the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's celebration of the group next month.

Bob Bonis was the group's tour manager from 1964 to 1966. The photos show a wide range of their activities, from performances onstage to hanging out. One photo shows Keith Richards cutting Charlie Watts' hair.

The photos will be part of a week-long tribute for the Music Masters Series, to be held on October 21 to 26.

Some of the musicians who worked with the group will attend a concert, and other events will be held during the week.

The series has also honoured Woody Guthrie, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Chuck Berry. The museum is located in Cleveland.
