Beatles vs. Stones

£5.99

Available in Stock

The musical rivalry between the ‘amiable, idealistic’ Beatles and the ‘dangerous, nihilistic’ Rolling Stones was presented as the 1960s’ great cultural divide. Bringing a historian’s eye to this battle of the bands, McMillian challenges such a simplistic opposition. He uses overlooked magazines and underground newspapers to show how the rivalry was constructed by managers and marketers; he also presents a more nuanced picture of the groups’ combination of personal rapport and emulous competition.
