Overview

For more than 40 years, the Rolling Stones have proved themselves as one of history’s greatest rock bands. This nostalgic anthology takes a pictorial journey back to the roots of the group’s rock stardom and captures a long-lost age of music industry innocence. Featuring an extensive selection of extremely rare photographs—most never previously published—this is a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the band during the 1960s. Selections, including the very first studio photos taken for Mirabelle magazine and pictures of Mick jumping on a piano at the Isle of Man anniversary show in 1965, are accompanied by interviews with many of the photographers. A DVD featuring found footage of the band completes this intimate look at the Stones in action.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rock memorabilia collector Hayward offers two coffee-table books of photographs of the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. He carefully organizes the more than 200 seldom or never-before-seen photos per volume in chronological order and includes well-researched introductions as well as many brief commentaries by the photographers, from professionals like Cecil Beaton to others who snapped pictures as they stalked their idols. Hayward, who acquired the material from auction houses and the families of the photographers, also includes DVDs with silent footage of each group; the video of the Beatles is much more extensive. VERDICT Though offering a rare, candid view of two iconic rock groups (one shot even shows two of the Stones at a urinal), Hayward does not unearth any pictures that change the way we perceive these two bands or rock 'n' roll in general. These well-designed, lovingly produced books will primarily appeal to 1960s rock fanatics.—Dave Szatmary, Univ. of Washington, Seattle
