More than fifty years after their founding, the Rolling Stones still tour and create new music as the world's quintessential rock band. David Malvinni's Experiencing the Rolling Stones: A Listener's Companion looks at the Stones' music from the inside out. Along the journey, Malvinni places individual songs and entire albums within the transformative era of the '60s, focusing on how the Rolling Stones integrated African American R&B, blues, and rock and roll into a uniquely British style. Vignettes describing what it was like to hear the Stones' music at the time of its release thread their way through the book as Malvinni goes beyond the usual stories surrounding the Stone's most significant songs. Tracing the distinctive sound that runs through their catalog, from chord progressions and open guitar tuning, to polyrhythmic Afro-Caribbean beats and their innovative use of nontraditional instruments, Malvinni shows how the Stones have retained their unmistakable identity through the decades.

Experiencing the Rolling Stones draws together a broad swath of postwar history as it covers the band's origins in Swinging London, their interest in the Beat generation, the powerful attraction of Morocco on their lives and music, the infamous drug busts that nearly destroyed the band, the female muses who inspired them, the disaster at Altamont, their flight from England as tax exiles, and the recording sessions outside of England. Malvinni takes an especially close look at Keith Richards' guitar work and its effect on the band's music, as well as the multiple changes in the band's members, such as the addition of guitarists Mick Taylor and Ron Wood.

Experiencing the Rolling Stones delivers a musical adventure for both the lifelong fan and the first-time listener just discovering the magnitude and magnificence of the Stones' music, stardom, and legacy.
