Philip Norman - The Stones - The Acclaimed Biography (2nd Hand Paperback)
The Stones - their story - the band's meteoric rise to fame, the Marianne Faithfull, Brian Jones and Altamont scandals, the groundbreaking hits – is the stuff of twentieth century legend, and core to popular culture.
But it is Norman's skills as a researcher and biographer which bring a whole new dimension to such a story. Written with the personal knowledge, trust and co-operation of the participants, this fully updated version is indisputably the best book on The Stones ever written.
Norman spares no detail, covering the Jerry Hall/Mick Jagger split and the Stones' lives as tax exiles, the recording of Exile on Main St. as well as the iconic stage performances, Mick’s control of the band's affairs and his contractual disputes with managers and promoters.
This a story of fame, money, drugs, booze, sex, hedonism and the greatest rock band of all time.

"Probably the most detailed and well written book about The Stones ever written. Norman is a master writer and he spares no detail. What makes this interesting is that he doesn't glamorize The Stones. In this book they're human beings who are total self indulgent assholes one minute and really cool guys the next. In the end, this is a story of fame, money, drugs, booze, sex (don't miss the part about the Mars bar), rock 'n' roll, and the greatest rock band of all time." - Goodreads Review.
Philip Norman is an English author, novelist, journalist and playwright. He is best known for his biographies of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Buddy Holly and Elton John. His other books include similar studies of John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton.
