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.

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...
