Synopsis

The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones is the greatest book about the greatest rock 'n' roll band in history. It is also one of the most important books about the 1960s, capturing its uneasy mix of excess, violence and idealism in a way no other book does.



Stanley Booth was with the Rolling Stones on their 1969 U.S. tour, which culminated in the notorious free concert at Altamont where a fan was murdered. Taking nearly fifteen years to write, The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones has emerged as 'the one authentic masterpiece of rock 'n' roll writing'.

Stanley Booth was born in Waycross, Georgia, USA. He graduated from what is now the University of Memphis. After living in New Orleans he returned to Memphis and started writing for a living. He wrote about such musical figures as Furry Lewis, Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Otis Redding, and then ventured to London, where, in 1968, he met and became friends with the Rolling Stones. In 1969, Booth accompanied the Stones on their tour of the US -- the one that ended with a killing at Altamont, California. Booth is also the author of a collection of pieces intentionally misspelled Rythm Oil, and a biography of Keith Richards called Keith: Till I Roll Over Dead.
