Tattoo You: Print Ink

Tattoo You: Print Ink

Up and Down With the Rolling Stones (1979)

By Tony Sanchez, 309 pp. (paper)

The first tell-all, and whatever the truth, its lurid mythology remains lore.

The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones (1984)

Tattoo You: Print Ink

By Stanley Booth, 535 pp. (paper)

Booth's poetic rhythm oil about the '69 tour goes down like Southern Comfort.

Stone Alone: The Story of a Rock & Roll Band (1990)

By Bill Wyman, with Ray Coleman, 594 pp.

The checkbook entries end in '69, but Wyman's quarter-century as the Stones' bassist makes him an eminently qualified inside man.

According to the Rolling Stones (2003)

By Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood, 360 pp. (coffeetable)

Righteous, pictorial oral history knocked out by a quartet used to satisfying.
