Best book on the history of the Stones. Told through each member's own words, it puts their entire life within the context of the individual band member's point of view. Mick Taylor gets the roughest treatment for leaving after six years. I liked Charlie Watts' insights and anecdotes. Makes a wonderful coffee According to the Rolling Stones tells the story of the band itself--from starting off as a blues cover band, to gaining the status of "World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll band", everything is seen through the eyes of present-day members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.

After the song Martin came back on and cracked a number of jokes at the Stones' expense before they performed "Not Fade Away. America was a joke when we arrived," drummer Charlie Watts said in the book According to the Rolling Stones, "but by the time we left we had an audience and by the time we came back we had made a hit record. It was all uphill, but the audience grew every time.

However, the Rolling Stones eventually created their own sound by experimenting with instruments and writing rhythm and blues mixed with rock and roll. When the Beatles hit international stardom in 1963, the Rolling Stones were right on their heels. According to Richards, Jones named the band while on the phone trying to book a gig. When asked for a band name, Jones glanced down at a Muddy Waters LP, saw one of the tracks named Rollin’ Stone Blues and said, Rollin’ Stones. The new band, named Rollin’ Stones and led by Jones, played their first performance at the Marquee Club in London on July 12, 1962.

I liked it and learned a good amount, considering it's an authorized bio. I'd always thought that Keith had his hands full with Mick's ego, but after reading I think it's more likely the other way around. Hmm. Other reviewers say Brian, Bill, and Mick Taylor get shortchanged and they are right, though the book seems honest in portraying Brian as the founder and early leader, and Mick Taylor as brilliant but never actually accepted into the inner circle. Bill does get little attention, but then, he always did.

I found it a worthwhile read.

Great price! Arrived quickly! Good condition! Highly recommend this seller!

As for the book itself, I must admit to having been a bit uncertain as to whether or not to purchase given the mixed reviews here. Still, at this low price (cheaper than a paperback) for a hardcover edition of a decade-old coffee table book on my rock 'n' roll heroes, The Rolling Stones, I figured I may as well give it a try. Although I also have the book, "The Rolling Stones 50" from a few years ago, which I also love, I'm glad I took the risk and bought this one as well. I love that my favorite Stone, Charlie Watts, edited it, and that the photos are simply glorious. And yes, there are many which have been seen countless times, I'm certain, but also a few you might not have, which is worth the price of admission alone. As for the content, well, I have yet to more than peruse a few sentences here and there in all honesty, but I'm sure there are things that I will cheer, others I will hate, and still others I'll be uncertain about, but that's just life. I don't know what is or isn't true as I don't know these people personally, and I wasn't "there" for this, that or the other occurences noted within. As in most situations, there is no truth only perception. In short, I'm certain that whatever happened whenever to whomever, is somewhere in the middle of whatever extremes may exist within each individual's account/recollection. That being said, I plan to enjoy for what it is, another lovely coffee table tome on my favorite band. Hope this helps. And thanks again, Amazon. You're the best!

There are way too many books that are not written by any Stones. I dont really like the few that I have looked over. Outside writers seem jealous..! And they can be cynical and dull as a result. Their sources are often called 'he, said, believed, etc. THIS book is ACCORDING To THE STONES.
If you want to hear from the horses { ÷ § } mouth..and the guys got a lot of stories..
I ought s few books for the 50th, and I enjoy the purusing at my liesure. Funny how thier lives and even tours were not in the gossip shows..

The headline is from a cliché quoted by Keith Richards, and it is so true of the Stones. This book is not only the history as seen through the eyes of the band, but a wonderful swirling tribute to the greatest rock band ever to grace the boards. The book has a wonderful, natural flow, like a great Stones album. It has surprisingly appropriate essays from an odd assortment (Don Was, Tim Rice, etc.) that give the interviews real context. The photos are great, rare and raw. Not a goon's gallery of sleezy shots, nor over-posed out-takes, but moments that feel natural, unrehearsed. But, at their core, the Stones remain, as they should be - a mystery. When Keith goes on about, "I've turned round and found a pool of blood where the piano player should be," you know there is a story there, but you also know that at it's core, it is just a Keith says - "I't's just a part of the gig." He probably doesn't even remember the year of the tour.
Bravo especially to the editors of this tome. There must have been loads of material to digest, and I can't imagine that the Stones make it all easy. It appears that Charlie Watts spent some time helping with the text, but the heavy lifting must have fallen on the hands of Dora Loewenstein and Philip Dodd. They managed to make the book read like the way we imagine the Stones live - larger than life.
