About this product
- DescriptionTo Bill Javitz, all artists reveal themselves through their work and the Rolling Stones are different. Each exposes a little more of their soul. Written by Stones fanatic, musician, and writer Bill Javitz, 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 afteron - 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 chrological 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.
- Author BiographyBill Janovitz is a singer, guitarist and songwriter in the band Buffalo Tom. He has also released four solo albums.
