(Book). Rolling Stones Gear is the first book to historically document all of the Rolling Stones' musical equipment. It's also the story of the Rolling Stones, but with a new twist: their history as told through the instruments they used. This book covers not only the group's personal background, but also every tour and studio session from their inception in 1962 to date, with detailed documentation illustrating what instruments and equipment were used during these periods. Every song recorded by the band, including demos and out-takes are also documented, with input from within the Stones' ranks as well as from people who were involved with the band. This lavishly illustrated book contains hundreds of photographs and rare images, many of which have never been published, including the Rolling Stones' actual guitars and equipment, which were specially photographed for this book and are seen here for the first time. Whether you are a musician, a Stones fan or just the casual reader, you will learn many new facts about the band from their monumental fifty-year existence. Win the brands of the Rolling Stones!

From Booklist:

The Rolling Stones are right up there with the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and the Who when it comes to influential rock ’n’ roll legends. This incredibly detailed coffee-table book documents all of the musical gear the band has used, from instruments to recording paraphernalia, from 1954 to 2008. Hundreds of photographs—some rare and previously unpublished—­accompany a dense narrative, showcasing the history of the band and its music. Die-hard Rolling Stones fans—and even casual browsers who like rock music—will be eager to check this volume out. Appropriate for circulating collections. --Rebecca Vnuk
