    • This is a book by Rolling Stones fans for Rolling Stones fans. Unfortunately, if you are just wondering about the band and only a casual listener (like me) you won't get a lot of info about the peculiar band members. Also unfortunate is that the main author died before completing this book. It shows.The information concentrates on the first 20 years of the Stones and then just has bits and pieces from about 1990 onward. Since I'm not a hard-core fan, I have no idea if the pictures were rare or n [...]


    • good stories, the author knows his subject - and he stays away from a lot of trivial stones info some others might dwell on: It was fun to read Darryl Jones's great insights into Keith and his notion of their music been about irreverence than sheen. and Keith talking about the importance of not knowing a song too well before you record it - a need to depend on that initial spontaneity. and a rolling stones stage can cost $250,000. or brian's ability to pickup unusual instruments and use them to [...]


    • This lazy 'oral history' is mostly quotes from the Wyman and Keef memoirs, other books, the 25x5 doco and other existing interviews. The thread between the quotes is thin and it's just another rewrite of Stones history, tracing around so much that's already been said and never getting at the heart of anything. The Stones are simply too big now - attempts to catalogue them end up trivialising them at best; making you hate them (when you really shouldn't) at worst. This book is rubbish. Fornatale [...]


    • A good insight into the group over the last 50 years from many different perspectives. This is not just one persons take but a wide spectrum of people who were around the Stones over the years, including the band members themselves. It concentrates mainly on the early years, as it should, although it finishes at the 50th anniversary of the group in 2012. A good read and slots in well with other biographies of the best rock band in the world.


    • 50 Licks: Myths and Stories from Half a Century of the Rolling Stones by Pete Fornatale (Bloomsburg 2013) (780.82) is a series of good tales about the legendary bad boys of rock and roll. The most telling: when Mick Jagger was knighted by the Queen in 2002, Keith Richards was aghast that his bandmate deigned to accept the honor. I was also surprised to learn that Keith Richards lives in Connecticut and has a 28 year old daughter! My rating: 7/10, finished 7/19/13.


    • Entertaining, superficially-assembled of quotes and anecdotes relaying to the half-century career of The Rolling Stones


    • I thought it was one of the better books that I have read about the stoneste was so funny in the telling of some of the stories
