The Rolling Stones
After nearly forty years the Rolling Stones have truly earned the title, they are the greatest rock and roll band in the world. Sex appeal, good humor and energy alone could not have kept them on top for so long. It is dedicated musicianship and enduring talent as songwriters and performers that has always underpinned their success. Their trials have been many but the Stones have weathered them all and retain astonishing crowd-pulling power, long defying any notions that young rockers can't roll on after they grow up. The whole story of the band is here illustrated with pictures from and extraordinary archive. All the raw power of their music, their high times, tragedies, triumphs and personal tribulations spanning decades of social change are shown, proving that rebels can be survivors too.
