50 Years: The Rolling Stones
August 6, 2012 in Editorial
Through their long and wild career, The Rolling Stones have made their mark on our culture; from epic albums to famously bad behavior. Over their 50 year history, journalists have collected a treasure trove of material, but none more prolific than music journalist Hanspeter Kuenzler.
His new publication, 50 Years: The Rolling Stones – Views from the Inside, Views from the Outside is a massive two-part collection of the best journalistic material spanning the band’s career. The ebook includes feature articles from Rolling Stone, The Daily Mail, and Daily Express with everyone from girlfriends and wives to The Stones themselves. Much of the material in 50 Years: The Rolling Stones has previously been unavailable and the book weighs in at an unprecedented 2000+ pages with over 150 images. Part 1 covers the first 25 years of the band, from their early days in the UK, their arrival in America as part of the ‘British Invasion’, and their sellout tours around the world. Never before has such a landmark collection been available to the public and at a time when both music historians and music lovers are turning their attention to the “world’s greatest rock band”.
“It’s not only a journey through 50 years Rolling Stones,” says publisher Matthias Würfl, “but also the history and evolution of music, press and western society of the last half century”.
