MusicGoldmine.com has recently acquired, from numerous different sources around the world including Stones bassist Bill Wyman himself, a varied selection of truly stellar, one-of-a-kind Rolling Stones memorabilia items.
Wyman is well-known to be a serious and committed collector of memorabilia from his own group, with which he played bass and provided other musical contributions on every album and toured the world with for over three decades from 1962-1993. He recently decided to part with the lion's share of his vast collection and we were fortunate enough to acquire some wonderful pieces. Some highlights that were all personally owned by Bill Wyman include:
