Bill Wyman Newbridge Silver_2

Bill is showing his incredible collection of Rolling Stones memorabilia in Ireland from March 10 to April 20 in Europe’s only exhibition of Bill’s iconic archive.

Exhibited at the Museum of Style Icons in the Newbridge Silverware Visitor Centre in Co. Kildare, the collection – The Bill Wyman and his Rolling Stones Archive Exhibition – is free to enter.

The exhibition is a showcase of the Rolling Stones memorabilia that is scheduled to be sold at auction at Julien’s Auctions in California between May 29 and May 31.

Highlights of the exhibition include a 1969 Fender Mustang Bass with a Competition Orange finish designed by Leo Fender and used by Bill at Rolling Stones concerts and in recordings in 1969. Other ideas include the 1968 Gibson Les Paul Standard Model Gold Top guitar and case used by Brian Jones in The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus concert show and film in December 1968.

Bill says:

“Collecting and archiving has been one of the great pleasures of my life and will undoubtedly be one of my legacies, it feels like the right time to share my archive with the world. I hope people will get as much joy from my collections as I have. It is easier to let these items go knowing that a portion of the proceeds from this sale will support three causes that are close to my heart: The Prince’s Trust, Macmillan Cancer Support and CCMI (Central Caribbean Marine Institute) who are at the forefront of restoring the health of the world’s reefs and oceans.”
