Lot 7002: Rolling Stones Signed Album
17th May 2018
Exile on Main St. album signed on the front cover in felt tip by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, and Mick Taylor; also signed on the back cover by Billy Preston, Bobby Keys, and Dr. John. In fine condition, with edge and corner wear, and a light crease to the lower right. The records are included. This specific Rolling Stones lineup with Mick Taylor (1969–1974) is considered by critics and fans as the most prolific and creative iteration of the group, with a body of work including Exile on Main St., Goat Heads Soup, Sticky Fingers, and It's Only Rock and Roll. Boasting additional autographs from the session musicians who helped the much-acclaimed Exile on Main St. come to life, this is an exemplary piece. John Brennan recalled of the Stones, “Back when Keith, Mick and Charlie were partying hard, they’d be in the studio until dawn. We’d be waiting outside.” In 1986, during the “Dirty Work” era; on 48th St., NYC, the Stones were recording in the studio and Mick Jagger came out. “We saw him frequently so he wasn’t uptight around us. He tried but couldn’t hail a cab, so we offered him a ride home in my white IROC Camaro. I drove; he sat in the front seat.” Brennan also revealed his diehard devotion, “I once waited outside Mick’s apartment for 18 hours in 1984.” The steadfast autograph seeker “met Keith at least 150 times,” and possesses dozens of candid pictures as momentos.
