The Rolling Stones A Musical Biography (Hardcover)
|Author: Murry R. Nelson|
This comprehensive book documents the nearly half-century-long story of The Rolling Stones--the group many regard as the most eminent rock band ever.
From the Publisher:
By 1964 the United States had been "invaded" by a number of British bands, led by the Beatles. The Rolling Stones were seen as more rebellious and rowdy than the Beatles---they were the "bad boys" as opposed to the "good boys"---and this reputation only served to enhance their popularity with their teenage fans. The Stones far outlasted the Beatles and all the other 1960s-era British bands. The Rolling Stones not only continued, but flourished, their tours drawing enormous crowds for decades.||The Roiling Stones: A Musical Biography chronicles the fascinating adventures of these Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and sheds light on what has allowed these music legends to enjoy such lifelong popularity and success.
