Stones facts by dates - what book?
Posted by: J.J.Flash ()

I lost a bunch of Stones books in a flooded basement a few years ago and I really miss a certain book. It basically went up to voodoo lounge I believe and was a book where you can look up a year and month and date and it gives you either a Stones fact or Stones fun fact. Like if a single was released on this date or Mick flew to this place on that date . Does this ring a bell with anyone ? A title would be great so I can get it again. Thanks in advance!

I was thinking it may be the Stones Trivia book, but that was published around the time of Blue & Lonesome. Do you recall anything distinctive about the book jacket?

When Mick decided against his autobiography he said "If someone wants to know what I was doing in December of 1966, they can look it up on wikipedia".

Wikipedia didn't exist "when Mick decided against his autobiography"in the 1980s.

Terry has the book you're looking for, albeit out of date now.

We need to gather a search party for a sense of humor.

You, oh witty one, needs to be taught that humor (particularly sarcasm) is a very difficult thing to communicate in writing. So here's the "LOL" you so desperately deserved.

Mick also declined to write his autobiography well after the advent of Wikipedia:

Just for the record.

[www.nme.com]

"Jagger previously said in 2014 that anyone wanting to read his memoirs should “look it up on Wikipedia”, while in 2017 the writer and publisher John Blake claimed to have a copy of the singer’s unfinished manuscript and described it as “a little masterpiece”."

That's a great book. Some of the stories in it are hilarious. I love the one of Keith flying to Paris and then having to phone the Stones office in New York to find out his address as he had forgotten where he lived.

This says it is 1962 - 1998 but the significant entries end with the Voodoo Lounge tour and the release of Stripped in 1996.
