“Throwing Stones (The British Invasion Years)” (Includes Video & Audio Notebooks at End of Manuscript)
The Rolling Stones were a big part of the decade in culture and sound. They, along with The Beatles, led the way. The Stones were the anti-Beatles by design. I will go into detail as the eBook rolls along and you will get a great understanding as to how they pulled it off.
Mick Jagger and Keith Richard emerged as great collaborators and songwriters, rivaled only by Lennon & McCartney for output. They became social commentators with songs like “Street Fighting Man” and “You Can’t Always get What You Want.” They were also immersed in the drug culture of the day, as evidenced by songs like “Mothers Little Helper.”
This book will cover the first part of the journey for the band up to the death of founding member Brian Jones in 1969. This era coincides with the demise of The Beatles as well. ‘Throwing Stones’ goes through the music and the times this band helped to shape.
