Rolling Stones to release On Air In The Sixties book and DVD

A new book, “The Rolling Stones On Air In The Sixties”, will be published by Harper Collins on September 26.

Written by author Richard Havers and subtitled “TV And Radio History As It Happened”, the project delivers a look at the band’s rise to fame during their early years – from a January 1963 letter by Brian Jones to the BBC requesting an audition to the story of the group’s performance of "Let It Bleed" for BBC’s end-of-the-decade celebration television program, “Ten Years Of What.”

The book features previously unseen documents from the BBC and commercial archives and includes exclusive interviews with directors and producers who worked with the band during the era.

The Stones themselves also look back at their career-defining broadcasts, sharing individual recollections about the music, the clothes, the fans, the rivals and friends, and the impact they had on the generational divide and the world around them.

Billed as “the first official, in-depth history of the Rolling Stones told through the band’s television and radio broadcasts,” the book will be published in sync with the global release of a DVD containing recently discovered, never-before-released footage of the group on TV, in front of - and behind - the cameras.

The book and DVD will arrive during The Rolling Stones’ No Filter European tour, which opens at the Stadtpark in Hamburg, Germany on September 9.

The month-long run will also make stops in Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Holland, Denmark and Sweden before it wraps up with the second of two shows at the new U Arena in Paris, France on October 22.
