Jump Up: The Rise of the Rolling Stones
Digital Edition Converted and Distributed by Andrews UK in 2011.
Jump Up: The Rise of the Rolling Stones was originally a coffee-table illustrated softback that traced the band’s first ten years from 1963 onwards. Now available in digital format for the first time since it was published in 1995, this ebook edition, taken from Nigel’s original unedited manuscript, still assembles an amazing picture of the first decade of the ‘Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World’ – and includes material drawn from previously unheard interviews with the Stones and with all those that knew and worked with them during the period the book covers. Hailed as one of the first biographies to portray a vivid and dramatic telling of the early life and career of the band, the book covers everything from Mick Jagger and Keith Richards meeting on Dartford Railway Station, through their early days of playing West London blues clubs on to the package tours, the drug busts and the women of the swinging sixties, and from the death of Brian Jones right up to the start of the sticky 70s and the major stadium gigs.
