Throughout the late 1960s and 1970s, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote and recorded at a pace that most of today's young bands would consider unimaginable.

And although there have been numerous books and articles written about the Rolling Stones, none has systematically analysed their music and explained the stories behind their songs.

The Rolling Stones is an essential companion to one of the legendary rock repertoires of the past 40 years, and covers their entire classic output from 1964's The Rolling Stones to 1976's Black and Blue.

About the Author

Steve Appleford is a former editor of Option, one of America's leading music magazines. His feature stories and reviews have appeared frequently in Rolling Stone, the Los Angeles Times, Spin, Entertainment Weekly and the Philadelphia Inquirer. He lives in Los Angeles.

The book tells the fascinating stories behind all of the band's biggest songs up to 1976: who was Angie? What is 'Sympathy For The Devil' really about? Who did Mick want to 'Shine A Light' on? All of these - and many many more - questions are answered.
