[Sandford] does a good job of giving us the full story in humorous tones. Tales of friendships, flings, rivalries (especially the central one between Jagger and Richards) are all told with welcome irreverence --Arifa Akbar, Independent 22/3
About the Author
Christopher Sandford has been a professional writer for 30 years and a frequent writer about the Rolling Stones for 25. He has published 17 previous books and is the only writer to have written biographies of both Mick Jagger, 'the classic biography' (The Times) and Keith Richards 'Sandford's affectionate, warts-and-all portrait of Keith is undoubtedly the best read' (Charles Spencer, Sunday Telegraph)

Any story of the Stones is really about the great creative force of Jagger and Richards, and how they have sustained the band despite the great differences in their own personalities. The other players - Jones, Watts, Wyman, Taylor, Wood - and their part in the history are also well documented in the book. Interesting stories on managers, wives and girlfriends, supporting musicians, drug dealers, groupies, and assorted hangers on makes it difficult to put the book down.
The big business side of the Stones is fascinating. Their legend and wealth continues long after their creative peak thirty years ago.
The book's only let down is not having any pictures through the book.
Also I think a lot more should have been written about the most iconic albums the stones recorded.
