Ian Stewart – 18 July 1938 – 12 December 1985

Ian Stewart

The 12th December 2015 marked thirty years since Rolling Stones co-founder Ian Stewart prematurely died in the waiting room of a Harley Street surgery. Stu as he was known was much mourned and is still greatly missed by family and friends as well as his former band-mates. Acknowledged as the sixth Stone he was posthumously inducted along with the other Rolling Stones into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.

In 2003 Will Nash’s Private Press Out-Take published a Private 950 copy edition book (with print) that paid tribute to Stu through the contributions of over 80 individuals and twenty photographers.  – Click here to see the original Press Release.  The book is regarded as not just one of the best but also the most desirable ever published about the Rolling Stones. As Keith Richards has remarked of the book on various occasions – “It’s the Bible”.

At the time of the initial subscription a small number of copies of the edition were held back from release and these few copies are now available for sale via this web site. A number of the original web pages have been bought back on-line to facilitate this.
