The Rolling Stones In the Beginning: With unseen images


 The photographs are amazing – the Stones are still practically children, messing around, pulling faces and writing the odd song.    GQ  

“The finest single collection of Stones photographs I have ever seen” Bill Wyman



In 1965 the Rolling Stones were big and about to be huge, when Bent Rej was given unprecedented access to a year in the eye of the rock ‘n’ roll storm, accompanying the band on its first full European outing: the Satisfaction tour.

The Rolling Stones In the Beginning is Rej’s collection of more than 300 intimate photographs of the band on stage, on the road and at home, documenting a year in the life of the Rolling Stones as they enjoyed their first taste of popular success.

Long a fan favourite, this brand new edition offers an even closer look into the making of music history with images recently unearthed from Rej’s archives.
