Product description

'The definitive story of the Rolling Stones' HEAT In this remarkable book, the Stones themselves reveal the story behind the legend, getting right to the heart of what makes the group tick. It's the band's-eye view of their history, punctuated by pithy comments on album and single releases, on memorable performances and on the ups and downs of their private world, and also includes stunning illustrations, many from their own personal archives. The book begins with their roots and what brought them together. It then charts their rise from playing in tiny clubs to their success as 'the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world'. They describe how their music has evolved and how it has changed their lives. 'It wasn't so much a question of being a wizard on the guitar. You also had to be quite a magician to live with the Stones' Ronnie Wood

Review quote

'Their often blunt recollections make fo ra hugely entertaining slice of rock 'n' roll history. As producer Don Was puts it:"whatever else is happening in the world, you can always count on the Rolling Stones to show up and play the shit out of 'Satisfaction'". Amen to that'. -- Simon Beckett Observer
