A panoramic narrative history that will give readers a new understanding of the Rolling Stones, viewed through the impassioned and opinionated lens of the Vanity Fair contributor who was along for the ride as a young reporter on the road with the band in the 1990s Rich Cohen enters the Stones epic as a young journalist on the road with the band and quickly falls under their sway-- privy to the jokes, the camaraderie, the bitchiness, the hard living. Inspired by a lifelong appreciation of the music that borders on obsession, Cohen's chronicle of the band is informed by the rigorous views of a kid who grew up on the music and for whom the Stones will always be the greatest rock 'n' roll band of all time.The story begins at the beginning: the fateful meeting of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on a train platform in 1961-- and goes on to span decades, with a focus on the golden run-- from the albums Beggars Banquet (1968) to Exile on...

4-stars - Picked this up off the display shelf, read a few pages, took it home but really wasn't expecting more than just another writer's take on the vast written history of the RS. Surprise -- this book excels. Foremost, Cohen is a good writer & when he "hits the nail" (which he does in a number of places scattered throughout the book) he does so beautifully, with clear minded intelligence about who the RS were and what was going on around them. I get why Rolling Stone (the mag.) flew him around in Jann Wenner's plane and allowed him to spend weeks on tour with the band.
So give it a go --I say this as someone who bought "5x5" when it first came out (first LP I ever owned) and who lived in the London in the mid-late 60's.

Meh. That's about all I can muster for a review of this latest Rolling Stones biography. Most of the book is simply borrowed from previously released books/articles/interviews. Nothing new to add, really. No new insights. Probably only interesting if you basically know nothing about the Stones.
