Publishers Description: A revelation about the Rolling Stones and their times, based on archives of material, originally amassed by Bill Wyman. Hotchner explores the Stones' humble musical beginnings in London and traces their lives and times to a horrific climax in 1969 - a year when Brian Jones was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool, when Charles Manson perpetrated a series of gruesome murders, when Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix died of overdoses and when the Hells Angels brutally murdered a man at Altamount while the Stones played on. The author looks beyond to the consolidation of their reputation as the definitive rock group of their decade. The book also presents the real truth about their notorious sex lives, exorbitant drug habits and explosive creativity. Finally, Hotchner unravels the mystery of Brian Jones' death and exposes the turmoil within the rock group that led to a blood struggle in the final days of Jones' life. The author also wrote "Papa Hemingway", "Doris Day" and "Sophia".
