To be honest, I stole this book from my previous working place, perhaps the best working place in the world ( as agreed by most of my friends whom have been there eventually). I don’t know how my boss ordered this book for our mini library, no one appreciate these pages in there but me. Pubished in 1997 by Aurum Press in London, it has a different titles for New York version that is It’s Only Rock And Roll.
Authors James Karnbach and Carol Bernson take the reader on a journey through history with the Rolling Stones.But who is Jamas Karnbach? He is an authority on the history of popular music and consults regularly for US TV networks. While Carol Bernson is a photojournalist and writer who regularly contributes to the Los Angeles Times and other US newspapers and magazines. They highlight the important events, the concert tours, the album releases, etc., as well as touching on the numerous celebrations, disappointments, and critical moments that have been part of the Rolling Stones since day one.
Included in this book are rare pictures of Stones' memoribilia, many of which I have never seen in any book. Must be a real hard works to gather up so much data of a very depth research. However, if you are looking for a biographical book about the members of the band, you should pass this up. This is really a reference guide. You will need long hours in the bed to finish this book. Overall, this has become a heavily recommended to all Stones fan who longing for so much detail.
From the book; So, whether your heart’s been with the Stones since the 60’s or you’re a new fan from the 90’s who’s just gone wild over the group, you will find between these covers everything you could possibly wish to know about the music and the lives of the world’s most-celebrated and long-lived rock group.
