When this hardback book was announced I went right to AMAZON to pre order it without thinking twice. I knew that this book would hold some amazing photos but what I didn’t know was that it would hold such great stories.
The book is broken down into candid shots which I love followed by an entire section dedicated to just live shots. Could you image what it was like to have all access back in 1972. No one there to tell you you could only shoot three songs. No one there to tell you you cant do x y and z whatever they might be.
To have the freedom to be on your not just on the bus but on the private plane must be beyond amazing. On top of that to feel like you are apart of the Stones. To capture their most intimate moments, do be there for the ups and downs, the good and the bad, just wow.
I added this book to my collection because its inspirational, when I need a pick me up I sit and study images.
But this is not just a story about the Rolling Stones its about the photographer who captured the iconic images for a generation, Jim Marshall.
