Andy Babiuk, the author of the exceptional “Beatles Gear” about the musical equipment used by the Beatles, will do the same for another rock 'n' roll band with “The Rolling Stones Gear,” due out on Oct. 29, he announced on Facebook Sept. 4. The new book is co-authored by Babiuk and Greg Prevost, bandmates in the Chesterfield Kings.
"'The Rolling Stones Gear' is the first book to historically document all of the Rolling Stones’ musical equipment. It’s also the story of The Rolling Stones, but with a new twist: their history as told through the instruments they used,” the author said.
“The book covers not only the group’s personal background, but also every tour and studio session from their inception in 1962 to date, with detailed documentation illustrating what instruments and equipment were used during these periods. Every song recorded by the band, including demos and out-takes are also documented, with input from within the Stones’ ranks as well as from people who were involved with the band.”
Babiuk said the book will include never before published photos of the group and the musical equipment they've used. Some of the equipment pictures were taken especially for the book.
The book will also be available in England from Amazon.co.uk.
