I emailed Andy and asked him about this book. His answer was vague as all he said in response was "next year"...

Here's a 1 hr radio-blog with Andy.
there is some mention of the Stones Gear book after a couple of minutes into the interview.
it seems to have got delayed because of the Bigsby book.

...and yeah, I have a hunch that Ratbag Boogie could be part of his sources.
but at least he has been in contact with the band.

I'm saying that a two page full color photo of Paul's Hofner bass makes me feel very special in certain private areas.

The Rolling Stones' story has been written numerous times throughout the decades.

This book covers not only the group's personal background, but also every tour and studio session from its inception in 1962 to date, with intense documentation and detail regarding what instruments were used during these periods. Every song recorded by the band, including all demos and outtakes, is also documented, with input from people who were involved with the band throughout their career. The information and data used in the book was culled from several thousand periodicals, as well as hundreds of interviews conducted by the authors. The authors also carefully scrutinized thousands of photographs as well as thousands of hours of televised performances, interviews, and tour footage to present this factual document. It is illustrated with hundreds of photographs and images, many of which have never been published. Whether you are a musician, a fan of the group, or just the casual reader, you will learn many new facts concerning the band throughout its monumental 50-year existence.

Been waiting for this one for a long while.

I wonder, though, given the more numerous players, the much longer time frame invloved, and WAY more possible instruments to cover, if this book can be anything like the Beatles Gear book, which gave each instrument such loving coverage.

I have always wondered how the music shops survives. I have, almost, never heard of a professional musician actually paying for his instruments. It seems that there is always someone else picking up the bills. To gear up a band from scratch must be very expensive...

If a professional musician is getting free gear it's way more likely directly from the manufacturer, as in through an endorsement deal. I've never heard of a "music shop" giving gear to any bands. I can see loaning gear to musicians, especially if they're famous and live in L.A. and the gear is rare and will be used to record a million-selling album or some such but a far more common story is stores coming after people who are behind on payments, credit card info has expired, etc.

Now if by professional musician you mean superstar,or well-known recording artist with a major-label deal then I'm guessing you're probably right. But, to me, a professional musician is someone who makes money, or makes a living, however meagre, from playing and I don't think I've ever heard one say, "hey, that store down the road just gave me all this gear....just 'cause!"

there's a post around here somewhere about Keith buying his 72 custom Tele at a "music shop"
meanwhile, great to hear this book is finally coming out!

? The reason why guitar shops still exist, and the reason why vintage gear is so expensive, is because all the rock stars pay premium for whatever they want. The reason why a '59 Les Paul costs $200K these days is because people like Paul McCartney, Mike McCready and Keith Richards don't mind paying that silly money. Clapton is known for literally buying up complete guitar stores.

There's a famous story about a shop in Denmark street. They where informed a famous guitarist wanted to visit the shop privately, so without other customers around. The shop agreed, closed the shop, and then added a zero to each and every price tag of the vintage gear....

I am really curious about this book though -the Beatles have used quite some gear, and most of it was still available to inspect by the authors. The Stones have used a very limited amount of gear, at least up to around '75, and from the text above I do not get the impression the authors have inspected the instruments in person. They either where not allowed access, or it is due to the simple fact that most gear just isn't around anymore.
