‘Stu’- limited to 950 leather-bound copies – compiles the photos and the tales of one of the band’s founding members, Ian Stewart, who stepped out of the spotlight in 1963. He continued to be The Stones‘s pianist and road manager until his death following a stroke in 1985.
The book will be privately published by Out-Take Limited and will also include more than 500 illustrations, including rarely seen photos of the band at work and at play.
According to Rollingstone.com, guitarist Keith Richards says about Stewart in the book: “It was basically his band.”
Stewart is best known for playing on such Stones records as ‘Aftermath’ and ‘Let It Bleed’ right through until ‘Emotional Rescue’ in 1983. He also played on Led Zeppelin‘s Physical Graffiti, Pete Townshend’s ‘Rough Mix’ as well as blues legend Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions’.
