Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman is having an unusual art exhibit, February 21 to March 21 at the Rook & Raven Gallery in London.  According to U.K. newspaper The Independent , the exhibit features re-workings of his photographs, including shots of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall , by contemporary artists including Wyman's friend Gerald Scarfe , the creator of   Pink Floyd 's art work for  The Wall.

Wyman has a catalog of 20,000 photos, and he says he began learning about art while spending time in France in the 1970s with artist Marc Chagall .  "I met all these bloody great artists who are like gods -– Chagall, César , Arman -– and, although I was in awe of them they treated me as an equal.  They thought I was an artist of music," Wyman recalls.

Of his return to the stage with his former band at their recent 50th anniversary shows, Wyman said his three teenage daughters -- ages 18, 17 and 14 -- were thrilled. "They'd been to Stones shows before but never seen me on stage with them, so that was kind of nice.  I did get some quite rousing applause when I went on."

Now 76 years old, he will publish Bill Wyman's Scrapbook, a limited-edition coffee-table book featuring rare photos, in March.
