Kurzbeschreibung

5. März 2013
"He is a great financial mind for the market. He plays that like I play guitar. As long as there's a smile on Rupert's face, I'm cool."-Keith Richards on Prince Rupert Lowenstein??In

1968 Mick Jagger couldn't understand why the Rolling Stones were broke. The man he asked for help was a German prince, a merchant banker. They forged an unlikely alliance which re-invented the business of rock 'n' roll. As a youthquake shook the Establishment, Prince Rupert Loewenstein thrived in both worlds, never relinquishing his elegance or decorum. For nearly forty years Prince Rupert worked with the Stones as-in his own words-"a combination of bank manager, psychiatrist, and nanny," usually enthralled with his clients but often bemused and exasperated with them, too. Coolly impartial and dryly humorous, this is a refreshingly different take on the rock 'n' roll world from within its inner sanctum.

Born in Majorca in 1933, Prince Rupert Lowenstein was a stockbroker for the American firm Bache & Co. before going on to form a consortium that bought the investment bank Leopold Joseph & Sons. Five years later he met Mick Jagger and became accountant to the Rolling Stones, a position he held for the following thirty-seven years. Prince Rupert now lives in Richmond, London, with his wife Princess Josephine; they have three children.

3.0 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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Accountants apply here 26. März 2013
Von B. Johanson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is perhaps an accountant's view of rock and roll. Rupert is a snob, a poor observor and no storyteller. I'm not sure who he is writing for - not for financial people because his halting depiction of the financial aspects conveys nothing; not for the fans because there is nothing new -- who?

2.0 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.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't waste your money 8. Oktober 2013
Von Paul Chiaravalle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As much about the prince as the Stones and with little explanation about how the Stones structured their finances to become quite wealthy. A dull read at best!

5.0 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-smack-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!
