Alan LightUnder Their Thumb offers some memorable details from the inner sanctum…Despite such anecdotes, though, this book isn't really about the Rolling Stones—it's about being a fan. Under Their Thumb is a story of retaining faith, of keeping a flame burning through bad records and band squabbles and even through discovering that your heroes aren't Golden Gods, but actual people. It also documents a bygone age, before celebrity Web sites, when a kid could spot Mick Jagger at a club, write a description, type it up in a home-stapled newsletter, mail it out a few weeks later and still break news.
