New Rolling Stones Gear Book Due Next Month

A new book detailing the story of the Rolling Stones' famed instruments is set for release on February 4. The book, The Rolling Stones Gear, spans over six-hundred pages and took author Andy Babiuk over nine years to complete.

In an official statement the author explained that to know that band's gear is to better understand their sound:

"It's also the story of the Rolling Stones, but with a new twist: their history as told through the instruments they used. The book covers not only the group's personal background, but also every tour and studio session from their inception in 1962 to date, with detailed documentation illustrating what instruments and equipment were used during these periods."

Babiuk previously published a similar book, which gave an inside look at the Beatles' equipment called Beatles Gear.
