Mick and Carole - Still standing after 50 years

Marc Spitz's new book Jagger: rebel, rock star, rambler, rogue will keep you almost as spellbound as the rocker himself who has remained a constant presence in popular culture for fifty years, albeit aloof and distant.  Spitz is an experienced and well renowned journalist, author (Bowie: A Biography) and music blogger for Vanity Fair. He easily retraces and then captures and tells the story of someone who could arguably be called the greatest rock star of all time.  Mick Jagger captured the music industry and made followers out of all of us (whether you loved or hated him) and Spitz brings the story together in this great new book. 

Carole King's recent autobiography A Natural Woman :  A Memoir chronicles King's extraordinary life as a performer, her personal life and her present day activism. From her first hit in 1961 with "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" she continues to entertain audiences the world over.

Mick and Carole are both musical and cultural icons.  Both books are more than well worth the read.
