60 Years of The Rolling Stones: Book Launch Event with Lesley-Ann Jones

July 13 @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm BST

As the Rolling Stones celebrate their 60th anniversary, acclaimed author Lesley-Ann Jones launches her definitive biography of the self-styled greatest rock’n’roll band in the world.

The Stone Age details the inside story of the Stones’ musical achievements and longevity while casting a critical eye on the chaos they have left in their wake, from Altamont to the revolving door succession of wives and girlfriends.

How did the ultimate anti-establishment misfits become the respectable global brand we know today? How did five white suburban kids bring the music of black America to British audiences – and, after everything, how do the Stones carry on in 2022, playing to the grandchildren of their original fans?

In a revealing and entertaining evening for all music fans at the Boston cabaret room at the George IV, Lesley-Ann will be in conversation with journalist Duncan Steer, recently host of music chat nights with Nick Lowe, Baxter Dury and John Altman.

A Fleet Street showbiz writer for over 20 years, Lesley-Ann is steeped in rock and pop culture: she has been on tour with Elton John, Paul McCartney, Queen and David Bowie (who she also knew as a child), worked with Debbie Harry, and interviewed everyone from Princess Margaret to Brigitte Bardot and Frank Sinatra. Lesley-Ann is the author of Love of My Life: The Lives and Loves of Freddie Mercury; Who Killed John Lennon: The Lives, Loves and Deaths of the Greatest Rock Star; and Hero: Bowie.

There will be a chance to ask your own questions.
