The Rolling Stones. Updated Edition


It’s Just a Shot Away

The definitive, illustrated history of the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world

The kind of fame and success The Rolling Stones have achieved in their 60-year career is without parallel; their most famous riffs and catchiest lyrics are indelibly engraved in our collective memory. With their mesmerizing on- and off-stage presence, the Stones set the standard for how a rock band should sound, pose, pout, and behave. They were the first to instinctively understand that what you looked like was as important as the music, and that photography had a vital role in promoting that image.

“The clothes and the hair are always impeccable,” describes author Luc Sante. “They were playing themselves, but with such consistent finesse you knew they were instinctively aware of the camera and how good they will look in the photos.” Unsurprisingly many of the greatest photographers in the history of the medium wanted to take their picture.

Produced in close collaboration with the band, this updated edition charts the Stones’ remarkable history and outrageously cool lifestyle in over 450 pages of photographs and illustrations, gathered from archives all over the world. Unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones’ own archives in New York and London adds an equally extraordinary, more private side to their story. For Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ronnie this is their official photographic record.

  • Over 450 pages of incredible images from some of the world’s greatest photographers, including David Bailey, Annie Leibovitz, Cecil Beaton, Anton Corbijn, Herb Ritts, Albert Watson, Andy Warhol, David LaChapelle, Peter Beard, Helmut Newton, Bent Rej, Gered Mankowitz, and Norman Parkinson.
  • Essays from award-winning writers David Dalton, Waldemar Januszczak, and Luc Sante
  • Appendix including the Stones in the media, a Stones timeline, a discography, and photographers’ biographies

Un hommage au plus grand groupe de tous les temps. Ils ont accompagné mes jeunes années depuis 1962. Des images extraordinaires. Brian Jones disparu dans des circonstances pénibles, remplacé par Mick Taylor, le plus grand puis par Ron Wood. Des morceaux prodigieux, des concerts hallucinants: Get your Yaya's out et tant d'autres. Cet ouvrage est une pierre marquante de leur vie ô combien passionnante et semée de tellement d'embûches. Leurs personnalités resteront à jamais. Merci à eux!

It's just a shot away...

A fantastic visual history of the world's greatest rock'n'roll band. The book is huge, beautifully designed and packed with fantastic images tracing the 60s, 70s and beyond. The hairstyles and fashions are fascinating enough, but here you'll also find images of the boys recording some of their most important work. Essential for anyone who's even halfway interested in rock history, 60s and 70s culture or the Stones themselves.

Forever rolling...

Best book on the stones !!!! A plethora of photographers all in one like not seen before, to my knowledge. So... lets rolling stone


Keith S.,October 27, 2021
I was originally drawn to this Rolling Stones anthology by the cover. It was a shot of the group that was one I had never seen. However, the real reason for the purchase was as a gift to a friend of mine, who was a RS junkie. She was attended more than 25 RS concerts around the world and subsequently has a personal treasure trove of photographs of the group. She was dumbfounded by the uniqueness of your book. As a connoisseur of Rolling Stones memorabilia, this book was very well received.

A wonderful collage of pictures

A wonderful collage of pictures. A very well thoughtout history of the musicians that made a mark in the music and art world that will forever go down as one of the most accomplished music artists of our time.
