5.0 out of 5 stars Top Rank, 1 Aug 2014
This review is from: The Mammoth Book of the Rolling Stones: An anthology of the best writing about the greatest rock n roll band in the world (Mammoth Books) (Paperback)
Highly readable and informative history. This will be of interest to anyone with even a casual affinity to Mick & co.

Sean Egan's text dominates, offering in chronological order a history of the band using key album releases as chapter reference points. The additional writings mainly back up what's already been laid out, so are really superfluous e.g. the interview with Keith Richard(s) loses interest well before the end.

There's no starry-eyed view of the band here - if the author thought things sucked, he says so.

Having read the book I am keen to find out more from the Stones, from their recordings and films.

Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition or introduction for a Stones library., 30 Nov 2013

This review is from: The Mammoth Book of the Rolling Stones: An anthology of the best writing about the greatest rock n roll band in the world (Mammoth Books) (Paperback)
Brings together interviews and articles on the band and along with the author's reviews and opinions on all their releases, you get their 50 year up to date history. You can dip into the book at any particular point, but won't want to put it down once you start, even if you've read other books on the Stones or know most of their music. Well worth it for the 500 plus pages.

This review is from: The Mammoth Book of the Rolling Stones: An anthology of the best writing about the greatest rock n roll band in the world (Mammoth Books) (Paperback)
An excellent book which just about covers anything that's ever been written about the group. A must for any Rolling Stones fan.
