Rating: 1- 5 (5 is excellent or a Starred review) 4
What did you like about the book? This is a history of The Rolling Stones, from the first meeting of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, to the forming of the band, their rise to fame, their albums and tours. Sidenotes include information unrelated topics such as “Mick and Keith’s American Music,” “The British Invasion,” and “The 60s and a Nation Ready for Change.” The book does not gloss over the band’s problems with drug and alcohol, but it is appropriate to the age of the readers. The plentiful line drawings based on photos of the band add to the text. Includes a bibliography and timeline of the Rolling Stones and the world.
