LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Hundreds of newly discovered, unpublished photos of The Beatles during their first U.S. tours in 1964, 1965 and 1966 will be on display during this year's Abbey Road on the River event in Louisville.

The photographs were taken by Bob Bonis, who was their manager during those tours.

They show the Beatles on stage in concert, backstage, recording in the studio, getting haircuts, bowling and just hanging around.

The photos made their world premiere at the Not Fade Away Gallery in New York City, and will be at Belvedere Festival Park and the Galt House Hotel between May 21 and 25, this year's dates for the event.

Abbey Road on the River, in its fifth year, features 67 bands from around the world. Organizers expect 25,000 people to attend.

Beatles ABC Documentary

This documentary done by ABC came out in 2000 but I really enjoy it. There are 10 parts and you can watch them all on youtube. It beautifully captures how amazing The Beatles were and the fact that there will never be another band or artist that will impact the world like they did. Watch it if you have some time to spare, it almost made me cry. :)
