Paperback review: The Rolling Stones: Fifty Years, By Christopher Sandford

It seems as if The Rolling Stones have an infinite amount of rock ‘n’ roll memories to mine for all the biographies written about them.

Here is another one by Sandford (who already has books on Mick Jagger and Keith Richards under his belt). Here he does a good job of giving us the full story in humorous tones.

Tales of friendships, flings, rivalries (especially the central one between Jagger and Richards in which the latter emerges as the more heroic by far) begin in 1962, and they are all told with welcome irreverence.
