Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'There are many sorts of Rolling Stones fans, but all of them will love this book' -- Wall Street Journal

'Even fanatics will learn something here' --Kirkus Reviews

'His vibrant description of 'Gimme Shelter' alone is worth the price of the book' --Booklist

'A must read for all those who share Janovitz's unbridled passion for the band and their music' --Robert Greenfield, author of Exile on Main St.

Présentation de l'éditeur

To Bill Janovitz, all artists reveal themselves through their work and the Rolling Stones are no different. Each exposes a little more of their soul. Written by Stones fanatic, musician, and writer Bill Janovitz, this is a song-by-song chronicle that maps the landmarks of the band's career while expanding upon their recording and personal history through insightful and energetic prose. With its conversational tone - much like friends pouring over old records on a Saturday afternoon - the book presents the musical leaps taken by the band and a discussion of how the lyrical content both reflected and influenced popular culture. The song choices - fifty in all - are chronological and subjective. Most of them are the classic hits, however, the book digs deeper into beloved album tracks and songs with unique stories behind them. Rocks Off is the ultimate listening guide and thinking man's companion that will spur readers to dust off those old albums and listen in with a newfound perspective on one of the most famous and acclaimed rock'n'roll bands of all time.

Bonne analyse de 50 morceaux pouvant définir les Stones sur les 50 dernières années. On peut discuter le choix de certains morceaux (ce n'est pas un Best Of) mais l'essentiel y est. Le monsieur est musicien ce qui rajoute de l'intérêt à son analyse et il parsème ses papiers d'extraits biographiques de l'époque considérée, ce qui rend la lecture moins aride.

Un must pour les fans of course...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fan's Notes 30 juillet 2013
Par Will Donham - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Great execution of an interesting idea: tell the story of the Rolling Stones through 50 essays on 50 of their songs.

Die-hard Stones fan Janovitz deftly combines musical knowledge (Keith doesn't play on Sway?) with well-researched details on the band's personal lives to cover the band's entire history from their early single Tell Me through A Bigger Bang. As Janovitz writes, it would have been easy to stop in 1971 and focus on the biggest hits and their golden years. But some of the most interesting stuff in the book is the awkward years after that: their relationship to punk and disco, their efforts to stay culturally relevant, and the look at how a legendary band slides into their twilight years while trying to maintain the swagger of their youth.

Highly recommended if you are a fan of the Stones or a fan or good music writing.

I have purchased at least 100 books from over the years and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. I am a major collector of Rolling Stones memorabilia and have well over 100 books on the band. I have not read all of them, but this book stands out as one of the very best of them all. The author obviously knows a lot about the band's history and is a talented writer, but what makes it really interesting reading is his ability to analyze each song with such strong knowledge of other factors going on in the music world and the world at large at the time each song was written and released. If any of the Stones themselves happen to read this book, I think they would approve and agree with most all of it. Great job!!

I really enjoyed reading this. It's a great bathroom book, Janovitz gives you a good idea of what the band may have been going through when they recorded some of their finest tracks. I can't argue with his selections either; with so many to choose from, he did a nice job picking songs. There is no continuous narrative, but you can still get a feel for the trajectory of the Stones, and of the fusion and friction of the Jagger/Richards partnership. It's mainly just a fun book to read a song at a time. If you want the history of the band, or just some juicy stories, there are better books, but if you want an idea of the atmosphere they recorded in, and how the songs came together, this is worth your time.

With the amount of comprehensive scholarship already existing on the Stones catalog, it would seem a quixotic, if not utterly futile task to arrive at much in the way of new and revelatory insights into the best rock band to ever make the rounds. Solving this equation is the principle achievement of Bill Janovitz's terrific new history of the band, which intriguingly recasts their story through an expert and detailed account of fifty of their most vital recordings, providing both valuable details about the sessions themselves as well as their context within the groups different eras. As a highly accomplished singer/songwriter in the great Buffalo Tom, Janovitz is uniquely qualified to assess the unique digressions, risks and concessions that have comprised the Stones fascinating trajectory. The net result is a wonderful and novel history of these rock titans which serves both as a great introduction to newcomers and a welcome addendum to Stones completists. Highly recommended.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Almost perfect book 22 mai 2015
Par Lester - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
One very enjoyable book about the history of the Rolling Stones organized in 50 songs. I am always looking for band biographies that focus in the process of writing and/or song analysis from a musical/ lyrical point of view. i felt compelled to buy this book and I was not disappointed, I even felt the need to go back to some songs and listen to the details. Janovitz knows about music; one of his best chapters is the last one where he discusses the song "Plundered my soul". I would give it far stars, but some songs are not analyzed at all and are instead filled with history of the band at that time, and this is something I don't need to read anymore! Great book!
