About The Rolling Stones – In The Beginning

In 1965 the Rolling Stones were big and about to be huge, when photographer Bent Rej was given unprecedented access to a year in the eye of the rock ‘n’ roll storm, accompanying the band on its first full European outing: the Satisfaction tour.

A young photographer for a Danish newspaper, he soon became friends with the band and found himself part of their inner circle – granting him unprecedented access to life inside one of the biggest bands on the planet as they grew in fame and stature.

The Rolling Stones: In the Beginning is Rej’s unique collection of more than 300 intimate photographs of the band on stage, on the road and at home – showing the band in a new light, a tight-knit group of young guys having a great time as a frenzy of fame builds around them.

Long a fan favourite, the book was first published in 2006 and this new, expanded edition offers an even closer look into the making of music history with the addition of never-before-seen images recently unearthed from Rej’s archives.
