It will be 50 years in July that the Rolling Stones took the stage at the Marquee Club in London and while it’s easy to see that period as a lifetime ago, it’s difficult to fathom what keeps them going after half a century.
To mark the occasion, the band is releasing ‘The Rolling Stones 50’, a book that tells the story as only they can. With privileged access to a wealth of unseen and rare material, the 352 page hardback is packed with superb photography, contact sheets, negative strips and so much more drawn from every period in the band’s history.
With illustrations topping 1,000, it also features some of the most rare and interesting Stones memorabilia in existence: international posters, draft record cover art, bubblegum cards, jigsaws and other previously unpublished treasures specially photographed for this volume.
The books is scheduled for release in July and will be published by Thames & Hudson.
Also in the works is a documentary celebrating the same milestone directed by Brett Morgen.
