Product Description

Review

The Mammoth Book of The Rolling Stones would be worth the cover price for an 80-page-80-page!- interview with Keith that appeared in abridged form in Rolling Stone magazine in 1971. Now that's mammoth. (Mike Segretto Psychobabble)

[I]f you weren't around during their heyday . . . the next best thing . . . an authentic insight into the Stones' history (Abi Jackson Bishopbriggs Herald, Springburn Herald and Kirkintilloch Herald)

The definitive collection of writing about the band. (Choice Magazine)

Book Description

A bumper commemoration of the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones' signing in 1963.

Product Description

‘The greatest rock ’n’ roll band in the world!’



This vainglorious introduction given to The Rolling Stones on stage by an excitable roadie was almost immediately accepted as a simple statement of fact. It was already evident that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Co. were, as their first manager Andrew Loog Oldham had claimed, ‘a way of life’.



The Stones’ defiance of convention made them the figureheads of a questioning new generation, and drove the Establishment to imprison them. This enduring rebel aura and the unmistakeable craft evident in classic records such as Satisfaction, Honky Tonk Women and Brown Sugar ensured subsequent generations of diehard fans, establishing the band as the biggest box office attraction the world has ever seen.



The Mammoth Book of The Rolling Stones provides a comprehensive collection of reviews, analysis, interviews and exposés – both archive and contemporary, favourable and critical, concise and epic – of these extraordinary cultural icons as they pass the astonishing milestone of 50 years as rock’s pre-eminent band.
