Kurzbeschreibung

To Bill Janovitz, all artists reveal themselves through their work and the Rolling Stones are no different. Each exposes a little more of their soul. Written by Stones fanatic, musician, and writer Bill Janovitz, this is a song-by-song chronicle that maps the landmarks of the band's career while expanding upon their recording and personal history through insightful and energetic prose. With its conversational tone - much like friends pouring over old records on a Saturday afternoon - the book presents the musical leaps taken by the band and a discussion of how the lyrical content both reflected and influenced popular culture. The song choices - fifty in all - are chronological and subjective. Most of them are the classic hits, however, the book digs deeper into beloved album tracks and songs with unique stories behind them. Rocks Off is the ultimate listening guide and thinking man's companion that will spur readers to dust off those old albums and listen in with a newfound perspective on one of the most famous and acclaimed rock'n'roll bands of all time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Stones By Tracks 7. August 2016
Von J.L. Populist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
What I really enjoy about this book is the details about the fifty selected songs.
Those details often are who wrote the song, who played what, and the meaning of the lyrics.
There is also some info on the dynamics of the Rolling Stones.
There is mention of the drugs and affairs but it's not overloaded in the style of a "tell-all" book.

The reader gets a glimpse into the workings of a very popular rock band in the sixties and the obstacles that they ultimately overcame to last as long as they have.
You get a look at the times and how that effected the songwriting and vice versa. The impact the Rolling Stones music had on society.

An interesting read full of interview quotes and Stones trivia.

5.0 von 5 Sternen When the Rolling Stones went to Muscle Shoals......Oh boy... 22. Februar 2015
Von smoothdancer29 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a different book on the Stones. I was a fan, younger who just picked up on their music. There is so much information on HOW they recorded and where. One place mostly was Muscle Shoals, which is known for many artists going to. The Stones are no different. They did "Wild Horses and many songs from their album "Wild Horses" in this small studio. But with a great sound, this is the reason why the studio is so popular! If you want to read about some crazy times with Mick and Keith.....although their are books already written about that, this one gives you the humor behind it. The songs, and sometimes the meanings.

4.0 von 5 Sternen More Great Commentary from Bill Janovitz 5. Juni 2014
Von Patrick Mc Coy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Bill Janovitz wrote an interesting 33 1/3 series book on The Rolling Stones landmark album Exile On Main Street. In his new book, Rocks Off (2013) tells the story of the Rolling Stones. The book is divided into three sections that reflect three distinct line ups, the early version was the Brian Jones era, followed by the Mick Taylor years, and finally the Ron Wood years which has been the longest. Janovitz admit if he was writing this book about the album he has found worthwhile it would have stopped at 1981 Tattoo You, but this is a history and a critical appraisal, but there is a good deal of analysis about what makes the songs successful. I made a play list of all the tracks and listened as I read about each particular track. A well-researched and fascinating look at a band that is still together more than 50 years later.

5.0 von 5 Sternen like "waiting on a friend" the music on the album ... 8. März 2015
Von Bruce Thau - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Learning so many little tidbits of individual songs of who played what instrument, Keith on bass ect that I never knew, and many other tidbits of what was going on in the band at time of recording the song, where and when it was recorded, like "waiting on a friend" the music on the album was recorded in the early 70's with mick Taylor on guitar, and vocals recorded for the song at the time of release of tattoo you. One of the best books on the band I've ever read. Bowie on backing vocals of "it's only rock n roll" and Kenny jones on drum. Many great facts.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I really enjoyed reading this 23. April 2015
Von top5jimmy53 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed reading this. It's a great bathroom book, Janovitz gives you a good idea of what the band may have been going through when they recorded some of their finest tracks. I can't argue with his selections either; with so many to choose from, he did a nice job picking songs. There is no continuous narrative, but you can still get a feel for the trajectory of the Stones, and of the fusion and friction of the Jagger/Richards partnership. It's mainly just a fun book to read a song at a time. If you want the history of the band, or just some juicy stories, there are better books, but if you want an idea of the atmosphere they recorded in, and how the songs came together, this is worth your time.
