Ian Stewart – 18 July 1938 – 12 December 1985

It is thirty five 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 former band-mates. Acknowledged as the sixth Stone he was inducted as a member of the Rolling Stones posthumously 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.  This set still remains the only book to feature extensive contributions from all six surviving members of the Rolling Stones as well as many other friends and working colleagues of Ian’s. The book is regarded as the most collectable of all books on the Rolling Stones (including Exile which Will Nash compiled and edited) due to it’s scarcity and unique content.

At the time of the initial subscription a number of copies of the edition were held back from release which are available for sale only via this web site. Any specific enquiry can be made to info@out-take.co.uk
