I'm a new Rolling Stones fan -- even though I'm old enough to have been a fan for the last fifty years. I liked their music when I was young, but usually without knowing it was "Stones." And I thought Mick was cute, but never paid any attention to the rest of the band. What a mistake!
It took reading Keith Richards autobiography, "Life," (highly recommended) to make me realize there was a whole world of music out there that I needed to explore. As someone without a lot of Stones books, I thought the pictures alone in this book made it worth every penny. The commentary from Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie makes it a little more personal than many commemorative books. It's so interesting to watch the band members turn from boys into men, and to see how the band itself matures into "the greatest rock and roll band ever." Yes, the book is a bit short on background material, but that's readily available elsewhere.
I say, if you're a Rolling Stones fan, you need to own this book. Or even if you're just interested in seeing what the music scene was like in the sixties -- over half of the book is devoted to the 1962-69 period.
