I thought is first book (pictorial in many ways) was not robust or deep enough to satisfy any Stones fan's thirst of inquiry.

That's the Large-Print-Edition (14.4" x 11.1") -- but the Standard-Edition (12.2" x 9.6") is only 26 GBP.

For 287 pounds, that's what one seller wants for it, with a hand signed photo print from Bill Wyman, and the large format plus the undeniable allure of the subject matter, I am thinking that's not at all a bad price.

Especially if the photos differ from copy to copy, but it is unclear if that is the case.

The Rolling Stones Bassist Bill Wyman on Capturing The Band From The Inside

By Bill Wyman
Photography Bill Wyman

Published February 6, 2020


"Mick Jagger helping Keith with his snake-skin boots—‘Keith Giving Mick The Boot’, as I would always say.”

In his new book, Stones From the Inside: Rare and Unseen Images, Bill Wyman, a photographer and former bassist of The Rolling Stones, provides intimate access to the legendary rock band as they’ve never been seen before.

“I joined The Rolling Stones in December 1962. After some success, I was able, a few years later, to purchase my first serious camera—a Nikkormat, together with a 135 Nikon lens—in Paris, France. From that time on I began to take photos in earnest, both at home and on tour with The Rolling Stones, preferring, for some reason, to photograph subjects when they were not aware of my camera, or were otherwise occupied. I took them mainly to illustrate my daily diaries. I’ve continued to take photographs, even to the present day. I’ve been lucky enough to have met—and in some instances, become close friends with—several photographers over the years. I’ve been continually inspired by their work, and when the camera was focused on me, I always paid close attention, in hopes that I would be able to hone my own photographic art into something a little bit better than just taking ‘snaps.’” —BILL WYMAN



“That’s Brian Jones looking very dapper at the RCA Studios in Hollywood. It was March 1966. I always bunked up with Brian in those days; we shared rooms. Mick and Keith shared one room, Charlie and Andrew Oldham shared another room, and me and Brian shared the other room, so I was always very close to Brian. We were the two that always went out and about in the clubs. That’s just a shot of him walking across the studio, and I just captured it and I really like it. It’s one of my favourite pictures of him.”



“That’s Keith with his choice of color designs! That’s half the picture. There’s another full-length, and there he is with a red and green tie against a black and white checked jacket, and then he’s got brown and black striped trousers on. It’s kind of good for the camera.”



“That’s taken on a plane. They’re all reading something, and I just captured that because I thought it was interesting. It’s just them on a plane and it’s unusual. I never thought of it as a very special photo, but for the book I kept it in.”



“That shot I took driving to a gig in Germany, I think. We were just driving, me and Brian in the back. I just looked in the driver’s mirror and I saw him, and I managed to take the photo. You can see the road at the bottom through the windscreen. A lot of people really think it’s a bit special.”



“There’s two pictures: Keith trying to take the boot off and then Mick helping him. That’s at the Rock and Roll Circus, and there’s Brian right in the background. Mick’s just pulling his snakeskin boot off to help him. Keith was rather wanting to be barefooted.”



“That’s [Wyman’s wife] Suzanne [Accosta]’s favorite picture of Charlie [Watts]. It’s in Olympic Studios, I’m almost certain. He’s spinning his drumsticks. It’s got nice movement in it.”



“That’s in a studio. That’s gotta be in Pathe in Paris. That’s the back of Keith there.”



“That’s Charlie being Charlie, really. It’s taken at SIR Studios in New York. Charlie’s just posing really for me and doing something a bit unusual with his arms, which turned out to be quite photogenic.”



“That’s Ronnie [Wood] being silly again, sticking his tongue out while he’s playing. That’s in the studio at Longview Farm in Massachusetts in 1981.”



“That’s one of Keith with the chainsaw, which is perfect! Keith loved a chainsaw, didn’t he? If anyone was gonna use a chainsaw in the video, it was gonna be Keith. And that’s just outside of Mexico City where we shot the video “Too Much Blood,” and a few other things. I captured him just picking that up, with that naughty look on his face.”

Nice to see previously unpublished photos.

The title, STONES FROM THE INSIDE reminds me of when I opted to pass stones without surgery. I ended up on the road for work with pain pills back home. 24 hours of peeing pure blood with shards of what looked like glass coming through. Good times.

Hi folks, does anybody have some information about the shipping costs to Germany?

Thanks for the heads-up fzv.

I am tempted to grab a copy but then saw they will stick in a presigned bookplate so Bill is not actually signing the books. Still might grab one but not as desirable as if Bill had signed the title page IMHO. Still it is a Wyman signature so may spring for one to go with my autographed copy of Stone Alone.

Just saw that and was going to ask for opinions. Seems a bit weird to have him sign a bookplate but since there is no extra cost why not. I hope that "bookplate" will reference the book.

Can anyone post a quick review of this since the affordable version just came out this weekend ?

I'm really considering picking this up, but having some good insight beforehand would help.

Thanks

I saw most of these photos in an exhibit Bill had some ten years ago in Appeldoorn, the Netherlands.

I saw online that you can buy an autographed copy of the book for $60, which seems really low, so I looked up the company to see if they are legit, and sure enough there were issues with the same company involving fake autographs. Hmmm....dunno.

I was ready to pounce on it, but it seems that $60 is probably what the book would cost without an autograph, right?

I was at the book signing where Bill was in attendance last year in November and the cost of the book with signature was £40 which is around $50 US.
I have seen several autographed copies on eBay for not much more than the original cost but I have no idea how genuine they are.

Thanks, Nate.

I've now found some of the earlier comments where there've been reports of signed "book plates" rather than a signed page with some of these books. Maybe that accounts for the cheaper price.

Can't put the pics on the site but here are the links:
including a pic with the piece of paper glued to the book with Bill's autograph.
With friends we have bought several books, each signature is different, NO auto-pen.

Yeah, it was Premiere Collectibles that apparently were selling some fake autographs, so said some folks on a Beach Boys forum (the fake autos were Brian Wilson)...but it looked like maybe PC was taking steps to correct it.

I don't know, it just seemed like their $60 price for the Wyman book seemed awfully affordable for a signed copy...not that I don't want a good deal.

Re: Bill Wyman book "Stones From The Inside"

I just put in an order for one, pretty great deal and the only thing I miss is the chance to exchange a few words with one of my favorite bass players...and from a 40 year serious reggae fan, that's saying something.

I think the subject matter is pretty appealing too, and of course that's the gist of it. Some of his photos are pretty inspired even without famous people in them. And there are a lot of commercial photographers I wouldn't say that about.

When I get my copy I guess I have to compare it with the photo rockerparis posted above.
