If any group has realized the ultimate rock'n'roll dream it is the Rolling Stones. The Rolling Stones' odyssey runs like the backbone through the body of rock's history, and the motor that has driven the band for 35 years is the powerful songwriting partnership of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. During the period 1965-1969 they wrote 11 UK hit singles, six of which reached number one. Throughout the 1970s Jagger and Richards continued to write and record at a pace that most of today's young bands would consider unimaginable. Although there have been numerous books and articles written about the Rolling Stones, none has systematically analysed their music and explained the stories behind their songs. Featuring an account of every song they have written, recorded and released It's Only Rock'N'Roll is an essential companion to one of the legendary rock repertoires of the past 40 years.
