"The finest single collection of Stones photographs I have ever seen"

Bill Wyman

"Society saw them as unwashed and unkempt, and while they were far from unknown in 1965, The Rolling Stones were not yet the greatest rock and roll band in the world. Having already sent shockwaves through Britain and the United States, they were about to do the same in Europe. Bent Rej's extraordinary photography captures this critical moment onstage, backstage, in private, and in public; it shows young men very definitely on a mission.From being shocked by them the world was about be awed by them - and life was never going to be the same again."
