As soon as Bill Wyman was given a camera as a young boy, he quickly developed a passion for photography. After joining what would become the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band, Wyman continued his hobby. When he didn't have his bass, he had his camera. The result is an arresting, insightful and often poignant collection of photographs, showing his exclusive inside view of the band. From travelling to relaxing, backstage and on, Stones From the Inside is a unique view captured by a man who was there, every step of the way.
Along with the images of the band at work and play, Wyman includes remarkable images of those along for the ride, from John Lennon, Eric Clapton, David Bowie and Iggy Pop to John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. To accompany his photographs, Wyman offers up wonderful insights, anecdotes and behind-the-photo stories, giving all us a front-row seat and backstage pass to what it was like to be there, as music history was made as a member of The Rolling Stones.

'In his new book, Stones From the Inside: Rare and Unseen Images, Bill Wyman, a photographer and former bassist of The Rolling Stones, provides intimate access to the legendary rock band as they've never been seen before.' -- Interview Magazine. 'Photography followed Wyman into his music career ("I find photography and music similar mathematically," he says) and once the Stones' career took off, he was regularly shooting his bandmates and his famous friends. He has now compiled some of these photos into a new folio, Stones From the Inside: Rare and Unseen Images - out now from ACC Art Books - which contains snaps stretching from the Sixties into the late Eighties.' -- The Rolling Stones Magazine.
