This is an auction for OLD GODS ALMOST DEAD: THE 40-YEAR ODYSSEY OF THE ROLLING STONES, by Stephen Davis.

“Davis, chronicler of Led Zeppelin's decadence in the best seller Hammer of the Gods, draws on 30 years of covering the Rolling Stones to relate their triumphs and failures. There's enough sex, drugs, and debauchery here to titillate most readers, but Davis remains neutral, letting his audience make their own judgments. As usual, bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts are reduced to mere sketches in the shadows of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Stones founder Brian Jones, the book's tragic hero. Much like the Stones's own career arc, the latter pages covering the group's last 15 years of mediocre albums and increasingly glitzy tours grind into tedium. However, Davis's use of short, staccato bursts of text mirrors Jagger's nervous onstage energy. As one of the few serious Stones biographies published in recent years, this is recommended.”
