"We were lucky enough to work with some of the greatest photographers in the world who captured many magical moments of our career. This volume brings together some incredible pictures spanning the past fifty years."
"This book isn't just rock 'n' roll, it's a roller coaster through fifty years of memory lane!"
Ladies and gentlemen...the Rolling Stones!
The definitive, authorized illustrated history of the world s greatest rock n roll band
The kind of fame and success The Rolling Stones have achieved in their 50-years career is completely without parallel; their most famous riffs and catchiest lyrics are indelibly engraved in our collective memory. With their bluesy rock n roll and mesmerizing stage presence, the Stones redefined the music of the 1960s and paved the way for rock as we know it today.
Produced in close collaboration with the band, this book charts the Stones remarkable history and outrageously cool lifestyle in around 500 pages of photographs and illustrations, many previously unseen, and gathered from archives all over the world. Unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones own archives in New York and London adds an equally extraordinary, more private side to the Stones story. For Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Charlie, this is their official photographic record.
Over 500 pages of incredible images from some of the world s greatest photographers, including David Bailey, Peter Beard, Cecil Beaton, Anton Corbijn, Annie Leibovitz, Gered Mankowitz, Helmut Newton, Bent Rej, and Norman Parkinson
A foreword written by President Bill Clinton
Three new essays from award-winning writers David Dalton, Waldemar Januszczak, and Luc Sante
Appendix including Stones in the media, a Stones timeline, a discography, and photographers biographies.
