Ex-Rolling Stone Bill Wyman Publishing Limited-Edition Coffee-Table Book


Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman helped his old group celebrate its 50th anniversary by joining his ex-band mates at their two London concerts late last month.  Now, the 76-year-old rocker is preparing a special collectible book that will give Stones fans a candid and in-depth look at his life and long career, both in and out of the band.

Bill Wyman's Scrapbook is a limited-edition coffee-table book featuring rare photos, facsimiles of a wide variety of memorabilia and handwritten commentary from the musician.  Only 1,962 copies of the tome will be produced, each hand-numbered and autographed by Wyman.

The book also will include a 10-inch vinyl picture disc featuring Wyman solo recordings, some of them previously unreleased.  The publication will be finely bound and will come packaged in a clamshell box.

Bill Wyman's Scrapbook is scheduled to be published on March 25, 2013.  It's available for pre-order online now at the discount price of 179 pounds, or about $289, and will cost 229 pounds, or about $370, when it is released, postage and handling not included.  Visit ConcertLive.co.uk to find out more about the book.
