Overview

"The Rolling Stones: The First 50 Years" gives a complete new view to the whole career of the Rolling Stones, from the very early days at dawn of the 60’s, when the future band members as many teenagers of that tim, found themselves caught by the new, sudden wind blowing from America called rock’n’roll, to the current days corporate mega-tours across the world. In the interim the "greatest rock’n’roll band in the world" not only changed the music scene, but also the world and our society.
The opening part describes how the band was formed, from the hard early days striving to get gigs, to the arrival of Andrew Oldham, the young, flamboyant PR-man who became their shrewd manager and producer. The work is both new and unique since it covers the Stones’ career album by album, or CD by CD as we say these days; from their first album released in 1964 to the recent Exile On Main Street reissue.
Touring became corporate early in the 80’s and rock’n’roll lost its innocence, yet the Rolling Stones mean not only music, but also busts, glamour, tragedies, gossips and the alike and everything is set in the work, so that each album or CD focalises over a particular year or years in a journey into the past and into the music that made the soundtrack of our lives.
The author has been following closely the band since mid 60's, and has been involved in setting up the archives section for the band's official web site.
