By 1964 the United States had been 'invaded' by a number of British bands, led by the Beatles. The Rolling Stones were seen as more rebellious and rowdy than the Beatles. The Stones far outlasted the Beatles and all the other 60s-era British bands. This book chronicles the adventures of these Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
