Author Uses 50 Songs To Tell The Rolling Stones Story
While watching the Super Bowl, Buffalo Tom's Bill Janovitz got a call from his publishing agent asking if he would be interested in writing a book about the 50 songs that define the Rolling Stones in honor of their 50th anniversary and he jumped at the chance. He told Rolling Stone, "I hadn't anticipated becoming the 'Stones authority,' . . . I really wanted to write about the specifics of what I love, how things work. I have all this inside information from being in the studio all these years. It wasn't a difficult pitch."
 
Rocks Off: 50 Tracks That Tell the Story of the Rolling Stones was released on Tuesday, July 23rd. The author explained, "The important thing about the list I made is, look, these are not my 50 favorite Stones songs . . . A lot of them are there, but I really wanted to get the whole arc of the career."
 
One of the songs, Janovitz left off was "When the Whip Comes Down" in favor of "Respectable" because it was "about them reclaiming their rock & roll rebellion thing when the threat of punk was being taken pretty seriously by rock fans."
