Several new books are forthcoming in 2012 - including this :

Mick and Keith pairing up as a team of authors, took me a bit by surprise I must admit.

Doubt its as simple as that. I mean, if someone were to compile a 'Stones in Their own words' type retrospective of quotes down the years, you could describe the band members as 'authors'.

Its not as if theyve sat down and written a book together.

writting a book together...

I'm sure you right that they didn't sit down and write the book side by side. But they must have agreed to act as authors to this book (compiled by some ghostrider or ghostcompiler) - and that is kind of a statement too, don't you think (though it might not be heartfelt...).

Not really, to be honest.

Even if it is new interviews (let alone something they've written, which is unlikely) its not as if they even have to be in the same continent for it, let alone the same room. This looks like the details havent been finalised yet, no doubt others will be credited as 'authors' too.

There'll be a shitload of officially sanctioned releases in 2012 to tie in with their 50th anniversary. Most of them will be things like this, probably another compilation CD and a career spanning documentary release - all of which will be largely put together by other people with minimal input from the band members themselves.

These things arent unprecedented - some unofficial, some official - and they can claim to be the 'authors' of all of them :

Mainly Thames & Hudson do art/photo books (including one on Mick) so probably not too exciting.

I've changed the title of this thread because it looks like Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ron are all involved (well probably not as much as the discribtion claims but never the less):

Product Description
This is the only official book to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the greatest rock and roll band of all time. Never before have the Rolling Stones been so involved in a book of this kind; this intimate portrait is the result of months of collaboration with Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie. Superb reportage photography from Mirrorpix and The Daily Mirror - the largest newspaper archive of Rolling Stones photography - documents all of the albums, gigs and dramas in the bands unique, international history. The stuff of legend, much of this material has never been seen before. Curated by Richard Havers, one of the worlds leading authorities on the Rolling Stones, it is interspersed with specially commissioned photography of the best and rarest items from one of the greatest collections of Stones memorabilia in the world, as well as featuring the work of legendary photographers such as Gered Mankowitz, Ethan Russell, Bent Rej, Ian Wright and Philip Townsend - the appointed photographer for their first ever shoot.

If you read correctly it's a collaboration which means the author or publisher has phoned the gentlemen individually and may have even met them individually. No word about pairing up. One of those "official" books which we have had enough in the las 50 years moody smiley

So 'A Life on the Road' and 'According to the Rolling Stones' consisted of quotes that were just made up, then? eye rolling smiley

Yes, it probably doesn't differ much from "A life on the road" or "According to" or from the Uncut and Mojo-special issues etc., but we will know in July.

Books, tick
Downloads, tick

Some how along with the greatest hits (which will come in a super delux box), documentary DVD and I'm sure a bottle of 50th RS wine that's it for this year.

All that "writing". They must be exhausted. At least Keith was there to help.

I agree with you. The only activity I can imagine is a huge concert in London or NY with many big acts covering Stones songs and the Stones playing two warhorses in the end. Dylan did that 20 years ago.I do not believe that they will return as a working band.

What about the years they did nothing or just recorded but didn't release a record until the next year? Not exactly 50 years hardy har har!

Mirror pix have loads of great photos, if the book features lots of rare ones it might be worth buying just for those.
