A stunningly good book about one of the greatest bands in history. A true delight for any Rolling Stones fan, or music lover.

An absolutely fantastic book about the legendary Stones, and a must-read for any fan. I kept coming across song after song that I personally had always loved, but for one reason or another had not joined their long list of classics when their catalog was discussed by fans. This is my new Rolling Stones bible!

Janovitz is a musician and an incredible prose writer. As a result, you get a better insight than I've found in any other music book. Loved it!

Bill Janovitz is not just a writer, he is a true fan of The Rolling Stones. In Rocks Off he takes each memorable Stones tune one by one with anyalsis of an accomplished musician in his own right. It provides an in depth portrait of the Stones as viewed by one of their biggest fans.

Being a Stones fan, I found the book to be insightful, eye opening, informative and very entertaining. Its not a must read, but if you're a fan and love the tunes it is highly suggested. Love how the author breaks it down by eras of the stones through the 3 changes in guitarists, Jones, Taylor, and Wood. It was like 3 mini books in one.There are of course songs I would've liked to see in the book, but hey until I write my own, I guess I'll have to take what I can get.

Reading this book makes me want to revisit all the songs mentioned because the stories in this book give the songs a new history that kind of makes you understand the song and the artist in a new light. These songs are great no matter what, and some stories have been written elsewhere, but the gems are in the details. The Rolling Stones are moving into the territory once only populated by The Beatles. It is sacred and hallowed ground indeed whith only these two groups of people inhabiting it. If you like the music and can dig it deeply, this will be a great book for you.
