Annotation While there's a plethora of books available on the Rolling Stones, from music writers such as Stanley Booth, peripheral figures such as Keith Richards' drug dealer Tony Sanchez, and ex-band member Bill Wyman, the Stones have never attempted to tell their own story. ACCORDING TO THE ROLLING STONES is a luxurious volume that gathers the group's surviving members' oral recollections together with those of musicians like Sheryl Crow, seminal figures like Giorgio Gomelsky, and business associates like Prince Rupert Lowenstein and record mogul Ahmet Ertegun. The main surprises here come from Charlie Watts, the band's stoic drummer, who is charming, candid, and erudite, and rock's archetypal bad boy, Keith Richards, who, contrarily after half a lifetime of almost constant drug abuse, remains perceptive and hilarious. Mick Jagger's contributions are polished with a whole career's worth of media savvy, while Ronnie Wood seems just happy to be along for the ride. Those seeking controversy, self-analysis or the answer to how Brian wound up at the bottom of the pool should look elsewhere, but, with an abundance of rare and intimate photographs, ACCORDING TO THE ROLLING STONES provides many fascinating glimpses into what makes the Stones tick.
Editors Note For the first time in paperback—and in a great reading edition—here is the real story of the Rolling Stones, as told by the Stones themselves. In their own words, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood get right to the heart of what makes the Stones the Stones, as musicians, songwriters, and performers, describing how their music has evolved, and revealing frankly how their own lives have helped or hindered their music-making. The Stones' own stories are complemented by insider reflections from key players in their story over the years. Also included are 64 pages of vintage photographs. 'For fans, here's proof that you can sometimes get what you want.' (People)
