Still going strong after 40 years, The Rolling Stones have proved themselves to be the ultimate rock band. While we are familiar with images of the band from the last 20 or so years, this book takes a pictorial journey back to roots of rock stardom and to a long-lost age of innocence in the music industry. Featuring over 200 pages of extremely rare photographs - most never previously published - as well as a DVD of fantastic Stones' footage, this book presents fascinating behind-the-scenes action from the life of the band during the '60s. From the very first studio photos of the band taken for "Mirabelle" magazine to pictures of Mick jumping on a piano at the Isle of Man anniversary in 1965, these images provide a compelling new look at some of our most familiar rock faces. Interviews with many of the photographers responsible for the images and additional background from the author complete this must-have record of The Stones in action.
