"He is a great financial mind for the market. He plays that like I play guitar. As long as there's a smile on Rupert's face, I'm cool."-Keith Richards on Prince Rupert Lowenstein??In

1968 Mick Jagger couldn't understand why the Rolling Stones were broke. The man he asked for help was a German prince, a merchant banker. They forged an unlikely alliance which re-invented the business of rock 'n' roll. As a youthquake shook the Establishment, Prince Rupert Loewenstein thrived in both worlds, never relinquishing his elegance or decorum. For nearly forty years Prince Rupert worked with the Stones as-in his own words-"a combination of bank manager, psychiatrist, and nanny," usually enthralled with his clients but often bemused and exasperated with them, too. Coolly impartial and dryly humorous, this is a refreshingly different take on the rock 'n' roll world from within its inner sanctum.

About the Author

Born in Majorca in 1933, Prince Rupert Lowenstein was a stockbroker for the American firm Bache & Co. before going on to form a consortium that bought the investment bank Leopold Joseph & Sons. Five years later he met Mick Jagger and became accountant to the Rolling Stones, a position he held for the following thirty-seven years. Prince Rupert now lives in Richmond, London, with his wife Princess Josephine; they have three children.
