Rolling Stones 50×20 features the photographs of Gus Coral, Bob Bonis, Eric Swayne, Gered Mankowitz, Jan Olofsson, Eddie Kramer, Michael Joseph, Barry Feinstein, Baron Wolman, Michael Cooper, Michael Putland, Bob Gruen, Mark Weiss, Chris Makos, William Coupon, David Fenton, Claude Gassian, Ross Halfin, Mark Seliger, and Fernando Aceves.
Keith Richards comments in today’s New York Times about the bands 50 years together that “You can’t get away from that number.” Today the Stones celebrate by releasing a greatest hits album called The Rolling Stones Grrr! featuring 50 tracks on three CDs.
