Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here's the inside story: the history of the Rolling Stones — according to the Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood have come together for this remarkable project. They've also opened up their personal and band archives to include many rare and intimate images that are interwoven with the text. The book gets right to the heart of what makes the Stones the Stones, as musicians, songwriters, performers, and colleagues. They describe how their music has evolved and how it has affected and changed their lives. They also reveal, with refreshing frankness, how their own lives have helped, or hindered, their music-making. The Stones' own words — insightful, funny, poignant, surprising, and, above all, completely authentic — are complemented by insider reflections from key players in their story over the years, such as Ahmet Erregun, David Bailey, and Cameron Crowe. A comprehensive reference section including discography, and chronology, studded with the Stones' personal comments on the music and the memories, completes this must-read volume. Here, in their own words and images, is the life and work of a band which has played the soundtrack of our lives for the past forty years.

Review:

"The world's 'greatest rock 'n' roll band' lives up to its wild reputation..." New York Post

Review:

"The snapshots are wonderful (one of Jagger talking to Chuck Berry, each in a more outrageous '70s getup than the other, is particularly memorable) and the reminiscences, set up as an oral history, London slang and all, are engaging." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"While authorized bios tend to be compromised, the colloquial, here's-the-way-we-remember-things flavor of the Stone's recollections makes this a must-read." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"According... does the impossible — it breathes life into the hoariest (or is that whoriest) of rock tales." Details Magazine

Review:

"This is essential for Stones fans..." Library Journal

Review:

"Still think it's only rock 'n' roll? Well, you're wrong — and we've got the book to prove it." Reader's Digest
