"He is a great financial mind for the market. He plays that like I play guitar. As long as there's a smile on Rupert's face, I'm cool." - Keith Richards on Prince Rupert Lowenstein
In 1968 Mick Jagger couldn't understand why The Rolling Stones were broke. The man he asked for help was a German prince, a merchant banker. They forged an unlikely alliance which re-invented the business of rock 'n' roll. As a youthquake shook the Establishment, Prince Rupert Loewenstein thrived in both worlds, never relinquishing his elegance or decorum. For nearly 40 years Prince Rupert worked with the Stones as - in his own words - "a combination of bank manager, psychiatrist, and nanny," usually enthralled with his clients but often bemused and exasperated with them, too. Coolly impartial and dryly humorous, this is a refreshingly different take on the rock 'n' roll world from within its inner sanctum.

Great book. Poetic voice.
Discovering how brilliant in planning futures Mick Jagger was. Had no idea how sane he was.
