The Rolling Stones : A Life on the Road, Is A Classic

Allo Darling, This Is Jah Keef, I Must Recommend Life On The Road If Your A Stones Fan. This Is One Of The Most Beautiful Books Ever Done On The Stones. It Covers Every Tour From The Early Days At The Crawdaddy Club To The 75 Tour Of The Americas To 1997/1998's Bridges To Babylon Tour. The Photos In This Book Are The Real Stars, They Are Very Wonderful, From Pictures On Stage To Ones Off Stage, Just Lounging In The Voodoo Lounge To Relaxing On Tour. The Interviews Very Nicely Compliment The Photos And It Is Very Well Put Together, The Price For This Book Maybe A Bit Steep But This Is The Stones, It's Worth It, Plus One Glance At The Photos In This 400 Page Plus Book And You Will Know Why It's A Classic

Hundreds of wonderful/rare photos in best print quality!

Highly anticipated book on the World's Greatest Rock'n'Roll Band... left nothing to be wished for! Text and pictures show this is the work of a true insider, especially to the tour life and the back stage scene. I happen to own more than 200 books on the Stones, this one ranks among the best five, in the company of strictly limited, much higher priced British publications. Congratulations to both authors for their thorough but never indiscreet interviews with the crew and the band members themselves, and of course to all the talented (and lucky!) photographers! This book is a MUST for all Stones fans!

Good, but nothing controversial covered.

I expected something more along the lines of the excellent compilation of the 1975 Tour of the Americas, with photos by Annie Leibovitz and Christopher Sykes, entitled "The Rolling Stones on Tour". There's no real sense of road life at all in "Life on the Road", little of the drudgery, shake-downs, nutters, hangovers, boredom, backstage problems, groupies, excitement after good shows, etc. And no photos at all that would make you think, "Ah! Now that photographer was there at a really special moment." A valiant effort, but basically a squeaky-clean job by two well-intending people, both close to the Stones, both obviously fond of them, but eager to clear the slate as much as possible of the controversy and turmoil that has both hampered and enhanced the Stones' music. Are the Stones getting ready to retire?

Cool book

Cool book! The end all of photo books of the Rolling Stones live performances.
