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.

His live performances are legendary and his influence on music—across pop, indie rock, hip hop, and R&B—has never been more evident.

In death, however, this debauched "rock poet" remained more stubbornly enigmatic than ever.

To Make the Moment Last: The Story of the Incredible Jades

To Make the Moment Last: The Story of the Incredible Jades by William E. Thrasher Jr.

The sixties gave rise to a whole new generation of music. Led by Barry Gordy's Motown Records and Al Bell's Stax Records, soul music was taking the nation by storm. Any rhythm and blues band worth its salt was playing their sounds.

When the Incredible Jades formed in Arkansas in 1967, this music was the fuel for their inspiration. A group of talented and energetic young black men full of dreams, the Jades played their hearts out to every local and regional venue within their reach, gradually making their mark among night clubs and social groups. What followed was a year of amazing and memorable...

Petty: The Biography

Petty: The Biography by Warren Zanes

An exhilarating and intimate account of the life of music legend Tom Petty, by an accomplished writer and musician who toured with Petty

No one other than Warren Zanes, rocker and writer and friend, could author a book about Tom Petty that is as honest and evocative of Petty's music and the remarkable rock and roll history he and his band helped to write.

Born in Gainesville, Florida, with more than a little hillbilly in his blood, Tom Petty was a Southern shit kicker, a kid without a whole lot of promise. Rock and roll made it otherwise. From meeting Elvis, to seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan,...
