Rollaresque: The Rakish Progress of The Rolling Stones

Rollaresque: The Rakish Progress of The Rolling Stones by Simon Goddard

London 1962. Five young hooligans have formed a band and are on a collision course with the austere and intolerant values of post-war Britain. From their beginning in a scummy flat off the Kings Road to the notorious Redlands scandal, this is the anarchic rollercoaster ride of the Stones' first five years.

We follow our heroes in a rags-to-riches romp of sex, scandal, mischief and uproarious behaviour as they challenge the establishment, invent the archetype of the rebellious, parent-scaring rock star lothario and, eventually, receive their comeuppance from the powers that be.

Presented with the...

His live performances are legendary and his influence on music—across pop, indie rock, hip hop, and R&B—has never been more evident. Matt Thorne's Prince has been written from years of research and interviews with dozens of intimate...
