Popular German magazine Gitarre & Bass has written a review of Rolling Stones Gear, by Andy Babiuk and Greg Prevost and published by Backbeat Books. Contributor Carlo May sums up his read below (translated from German):
"The book describes the instruments of Mick Taylor, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman, Mick Jagger and Darryl Jones and tells us the stories of how each piece came to be part of the Stones' fleet. Of course, it doesn't neglect the amplifiers, keyboards, winds and Charlie Watts' various drum sets. As if it's not enough work to collect all the photos and stories around the instruments, the authors go as far as to write a detailed Rolling-Stones biography, with dates, facts, anecdotes and a list with every studio session and every big tour. No wonder they needed over 600 pages to document this amount of material. This book provides endless pleasure to all Stones fans and guitar aficionados. In the US, the book costs $60. Considering the book's heavy weight, you're only paying $1.50 per 100 grams - and that is unbelievably inexpensive!"
