The Month Ahead

What to see, read and listen to in August

FROM THE ROLLING STONES 1972 / JIM MARSHALL

ROCK SOLID

The Rolling Stones might not have achieved the longevity of Queen Elizabeth II, who this year celebrates six decades as Britain’s monarch, but 50 years is an awfully long time to have occupied a top spot in rock ‘n’ roll. Accordingly, the Stones’ golden anniversary has been met with a flurry of commemorative books. Among the most promising is The Rolling Stones 1972, a visual diary of the band’s U.S. tour that year, which marked their first decade in the business. The photos are by the late, great Jim Marshall, the man who wrote the book on how to shoot rock stars. As Keith Richards notes in the foreword: “Once Jim was in, he was another Stone.” AUG. 15
