“[A]n elegant biography that provides new insights into the Stones' financial escapades.” ―Publishers Weekly

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Born in Palma, Majorca in 1933, Prince Rupert Loewenstein lived in London and Paris, and studied medieval history at Oxford before becoming a stockbroker for the American firm Bache & Co. In 1963 he formed a consortium that bought the merchant bank Leopold Joseph & Sons. Five years later he met Mick Jagger and managed The Rolling Stones' finances until 2008. Prince Rupert lives in Petersham, near Richmond, with his wife, Princess Josephine; they have three children.

HASH(0x9a766a5c) von 5 Sternen Not your normal Stones tell-all 5. Oktober 2013
Von Steve Schudin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Prince Rupert is likely the last member of the Rolling Stones inner circle to write a book or to have a book written about him (I just found an autobiography by Bobby Keys on Amazon. A small biography was written several years ago about Charlie Watts, for which Charlie offered not the slightest cooperation or participation).

This is far from being another typical rock-n-roll autobio. I am a nearly lifelong Rolling Stones fan. My earliest musical memory is of my uncle powering up an enormous and very '70's stereo and then putting on 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out'. I was instantly hooked! That being the case, I've read quite a few of the Stones bio's that are of the normal, "shoot-heroin-and-bang-groupies" variety.

This book offers a very different view of the band and the music industry in general. Prince Rupert was a very unlikely candidate for the job that he undertook as the Stones financial adviser, but they should be damned thankful that he did! This is due to the fact that Prince Rupert was not already a "music industry guy". If he had been, then today the Stones would be nearly broke like so many other musicians whose finances were sloppily managed. As it happened, Prince Rupert was a merchant banker in "The City", or London's financial district. He was also a man whose integrity was as well-formed as his snobbery. Again, the Stones were lucky to find him!

Rupert tells many stories about purging the Stones affairs of the corrupt practices that were the music industry norm at that time (graft, disappearing cash, side deals being made without the artist's full knowledge or understanding, contracts worthy of Caligula). He also explains how he was instrumental in cleaning up the industry's practices and raising the bar for music business management. The longevity and ongoing success of the band and Rupert's behind-the-scenes business dealings worked in tandem with one another very well and for a long time.

Another standout is Rupert's sense of humor, which is dry and English almost beyond belief! Without ever having met the man, just reading the book is enough to convince one that Rupert is the epitome of the unflappable Englishman, perhaps even more than he realizes.

Do be aware that there are sizable portions of this book that do not involve the Stones. The band is one of many characters this time, as opposed to being the entire book like they normally are. Some portions of the book are more Masterpiece Theater than rock-n-roll, but very amusing all the same.

Other musicians appear as well. One brief encounter with Cat Stevens (at that time very recently recast as Yusuf Islam) is hilarious and yet another platform for Rupert's laconic wit. A fascinating read all around!

HASH(0x9a55f6cc) von 5 Sternen A Memoir from the Business Manager of the Rolling Stones 30. Juli 2013
Von Tom Keoughan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The first sixty pages are a rather tedious slog through Lowenstein's royal family history, his upbringing and the "la dolce vita" lifestyle of his early business career. The whole thing could have been condensed to twenty pages, but it is his book, so I suppose that it's fair to let him tell us who he is. Also, knowing his background does give us a much fuller picture into both his relationship with and work for The Rolling Stones.

Mick Jagger brought Lowenstein in to look at The Stones' business affairs when, despite being one of the most popular music groups in the world, they were near financial ruin. After analyzing the situation, his first task was to gain a release from their contract with Decca Records. He also had to resolve an abusive relationship and tangle of contracts involving former manager, Allen Klein, which had led to them owing a huge tax bill while having little actual money.

Lowenstein secured a new recording contract with Ahmet Ertegun and Atlantic Records for what would be the monster album "Sticky Fingers." It was also Lowenstein who, for tax reasons, advised The Stones to leave the UK and decamp to the South of France where they recorded "Exile on Main Street." He also reorganized the economics of touring which grew to the huge moneymaker that it remains to this day.

One would have liked more detail on exactly how various legal negotiations were hammered out, as well as more specifics on how the dollar amounts and percentages were arranged in the great Stones moneymaking machine. That said, Lowenstein was their loyal business manager for some forty years, so I don't think we should expect him to air the particulars of his client's business in public.

On the whole, it's an enjoyable read, perhaps mainly because of "the Prince's" overall affability and breezy tone. It's also a quick read at 233 pages, which to Lowenstein's credit is probably exactly the right length.

HASH(0x9a60f054) von 5 Sternen More than you want to know about Prince Rupert 7. April 2013
Von James Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Prince Rupert's book about the Rolling Stones was a bit of a letdown for me. I'm a lifelong Rolling Stones fan and have read many of their books and I would have to put this one down at the bottom. Prince Rupert is far more interested in name-dropping and describing his own uninteresting history than he is writing about the Stones.

HASH(0x99c61960) von 5 Sternen Ego Mania 7. Mai 2013
Von carbonate - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a quite dreadful book. The author spends about a third of the book talking about his thoroughly uninteresting family. Some of the stories about the Stones are interesting hence 2 stars for two-thirds of the book (the other third is frankly in minus territory). This feels like a wasted opportunity and is to be avoided.

HASH(0x99c660f0) von 5 Sternen A perfectly fine read 28. März 2013
Von Momo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Nothing particularly exciting here. The odd amusing anecdote but largely uneventful (surprisingly, given the subject matter) and a bit dry. At times it reads like a laundry list of whos who (or rather, who was who) rather than teasing out what could/should have been (I imagine) some fascinating moments of rock and roll history. Most interesting part for me was commentary on Keith R. and his genuine love of raw music vs. performance art.
