Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
Masters of marketing, repackaging geniuses -- it is almost impossible to keep track of the number of greatest-hits compilations the band has released over the years -- the extant Stones (only three of the original quintet remain) recently decided to compile their own official history of the band. A coffee-table book, to be sure, but a very entertaining coffee-table book, According to the Rolling Stones is almost entirely about music, with Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Richards, the last three remaining original members, doing most of the talking. — Joe Queenan
Publishers Weekly
That their longtime band mate Bill Wyman did his own exhaustive Stones coffee-table book last fall hasn't stopped the other members from doing a collection of old photos and recollections, too. The snapshots are wonderful (one of Jagger talking to Chuck Berry, each in a more outrageous '70s getup than the other, is particularly memorable) and the reminiscences, set up as an oral history, London slang and all, are engaging as well. Richards recalling postwar London as "horseshit and coal smoke, mixed with a bit of diesel here and there" really drives home just how long these guys have been around. Richards's wit is razor sharp, and the band's collective knowledge about old blues, R&B and jazz is awesome. What sets the book apart from Wyman's is a collection of essays from various musicians, industry people and authors. Sheryl Crow's is particularly heartfelt, as she describes when Jagger called to invite her to sing at a 1995 pay-per-view gig in Miami, then to share Thanksgiving dinner with the band and vomiting up the holiday meal before taking the stage. "Is there a way to describe what it is like to have Mick Jagger flirt with you on stage as if you were alone in a bedroom?" she writes. Author Carl Hiaasen writes about drawing inspiration from the old Stones photograph that hangs above his desk. Whether there's room on the coffee table for both Wyman's book and this one depends on the fan's love of the band. (Oct.) Forecast: With the Stones in the middle of a worldwide tour, this title will get plenty of attention, and Chronicle plans to meet the demand with a 250,000-copy first printing. Will the book sell as well as Chronicle's similar Beatles Anthology (2000)? Not likely, but it still should strut its way onto national bestseller lists. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Inevitably, this official autobiography of the Rolling Stones will be compared with The Beatles Anthology. Not only does the Stones's book employ the same alternating-quote format, but it also shares the same publisher. But whereas Anthology attempted to be an exhaustive and lavishly illustrated Beatles history, with comments from key figures outside the band, According is more modest. Taken from new interviews, the only voices and perspectives belong to the current Stones lineup-Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood. No historical interviews represent deceased band founder Brian Jones; nor does his replacement guitarist, Mick Taylor, participate. Even more disconcerting, Bill Wyman, the Stones's bassist for 30 years, is only mentioned a handful of times (perhaps in retribution for his publishing a coffee-table memoir, Rolling with the Stones). Though the Stones touch only lightly on many aspects of their long career, their comments are often entertaining and thoughtful, especially those from the uncharacteristically verbose Watts (who also serves as consulting editor) and the always colorful Richards. The book is richly illustrated but eschews memorabilia (reproduced in abundance in Wyman's book) for photographs and portraits, many rarely or never before seen. This is essential for Stones fans, though Wyman's tome and Stephen Davis's Old Gods Almost Dead are needed to fill out the details of this legendary band's story. [Publication of this book is set to coincide with the end of the Stones's 40 Licks World Tour.-Ed.]-Lloyd Jansen, Stockton-San Joaquin Cty. P.L., CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
