New Rolling Stones Book Set for June Release

It may be February, but it is never too early to start searching for a good summer beach read! For Rolling Stones fans, a new book examining the band’s ties to New York City is set to be published on June 25.

The book–Can’t Give It Away on Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones and New York City–takes its title from the Stone’s song, “Shattered,” and begins with the group’s arrival in the city in 1964.

Mick Jagger Teases New Rolling Stones Music on Twitter

“There’s more Rolling Stones history in New York City than any other city in America and, I would argue, any other city in the world,” author Christopher McKittrick tells BestClassicBands. “The Stones have played virtually every venue of note in New York as a group or with their solo bands, and so many of their concert tours have kicked off with major publicity events in New York. [MickJagger, [KeithRichards and [RonnieWood all lived in New York for a time and became part of the social scene, and Charlie Watts’ boyhood dream was to be a New York City jazz drummer.”
