Overview

In 2006, the Stones were in the middle of their latest world tour, and reach the UK in the summer with sell-out shows at giant arenas like Wembley Stadium. To tie in, Aurum reissued, with a stunning new cover, Stephen Davis's definitive 500-page history of the band: the most readable and comprehensive chronicle in print. Davis has also brought it up to date with details of their new album, Charlie Watts' illness and the American leg of the tour in 2005. Davis himself is the author of a number of consistently bestselling rock book classics - especially his Led Zeppelin chronicle, "Hammer of the Gods", but also his book on Aerosmith, "Walk this Way". In "Old Gods", he has synthesised everything written, broadcast or revealed about the Stones into a single compulsively readable narrative: it is more comprehensive than Philip Norman's book, and just as raunchy as Robert Greenfield's. For anyone with an interest in any period of the Stones' history, from the 60s to the 21st century, this is the only book.

    This is a great Book!

    It's a really good overview of The Rolling Stones from the Beginning of their formation up until their 40th anniversary. However, there needs to be updated book written about The Rolling Stones as they are approaching their 50th anniversary and I am sure that alot has happened in the last ten years on the Band since this book has been written!

    'Bell flight 14 you now can land!' - dynamite book!

    Well remember that famous line in 'Performance?' 'When you come down to it the performance that makes it that really makes it all the way is the one that achieves total madness!' What a prophetic utterance by Mick Jagger. The film was so depraved in the content matter that it moved James Fox to leave the acting profession for nearly ten years by joining 'The Navigators' a Christian outreach ministry. This book is truly the definitive biography of the most arcane and bizarre group in rock history. The degree of arcane is remarkable, the conclusions are deft and the objectivity is very accurate. A must read for all devotees of the group and what is apparent very quickly is the 'rock' of decorum by Charlie Watts. No wonder Mick Taylor left so quickly and frankly since 1973 what? 'Only Rock and roll' and 'Shattered' - Doesn't get any better and the talent we all posses that is on loan from God is in the end what molds all our lives - so brillant were the records 1965-73 and oh the geriatric parody the remaining Stones have become. Harv Kubernik, Saul Davis and Bob Sherman - too many years fellow 'stoners' -
