Goin’ Home with the Rolling Stones ’66: Photographs by Gered Mankowitz

Text by Gered Mankowitz. Foreword by Andrew Loog Oldham.

Goin’ Home with the Rolling Stones ’66: Photographs by Gered Mankowitz

The Stones at home and unplugged by official Stones photographer Gered Mankowitz

By the start of 1966, the Rolling Stones’ position as rock gods was established. They were making serious money and splashing out on new homes and cars. Their official photographer and friend, Gered Mankowitz, was invited to shoot an “at home” session with each member of the band. “They hated the idea of unknown photographers visiting their private sanctuaries … If I did it then the press office would have a large selection of this type of image and could fulfil any magazine request without having to bother the band.”

Mankowitz kept these photographs in supermarket carrier bags stashed under his desk for several years, “getting in my way and frequently wondering why I continued to hold on to them.” This is the first time these sessions have been collated and published. The book includes both iconic and unseen photographs: Mick in a kipper tie turning on his new television and posing outside with a new Aston Martin; Keith, Lord of the Manor-style, with his blue Bentley and antique sword at his East Sussex home; Charlie grinning next to lingerie drying in the garden; Brian in obligatory silk shirt in front of a handpainted mural; Bill in the kitchen with his dog.

Goin’ Home with the Rolling Stones ’66 is a beguiling collection of images, shot with incredible skill, that offers that rare thing in Stones photography—a fresh perspective. It features an introduction by Mankowitz and a foreword from the Rolling Stones’ legendary manager, Andrew Loog Oldham.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Uncut

By 1966, The Rolling Stones were beginning to enjoy the fruits of their early fame by upsizing to west London townhouses or country piles, each decorated according to their own distinct personalities. In these amazingly candid pictures, many unseen until now, official band photographer Gered Mankowitz went through their respective keyholes to find a band – mostly – at ease with their newfound status as men of wealth and taste.

Big Issue

Many have dreamed of getting taken home by a Rolling Stone, but back in 1966 only the band’s official photographer, the legendary Gered Mankowitz was lucky enough to do so – to shoot a rare series of portraits of the rock gods relaxing in their less-than-humble abodes. Having lain forgotten for decades, the intimate, funny and revealing images are published for the first time in a book...See Mick fiddling with his big new telly! Meet Keith’s dog! Find Charlie grinning in the garden next to drying underwear!

Planet Rock

As The Rolling Stones’ official photographer in the mid-’60s, Gered Mankowitz was given the kind of access to the band which fans could only dream of. In 1966, Mankowitz was commissioned to shoot an At Home session with each member of the band: stored for many years in supermarket carrier bags under the Londoner’s office desk, the intimate photos have finally been collated in one volume, Goin’ Home With The Rolling Stones, ’66.

Daily Mail

Philip Norman

Unseen photographs show what Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and co really craved when they hit the big time was middle-class domesticity

Telegraph

Anna Clarke

Renowned music photographer Gered Mankowitz ...reflects on his time with the Rolling Stones. As the Stones’ photographer, I was really with them...‘I shot Keith Richards sitting on the loo and Charlie Watts next to his wife’s underwear'

Independent

Eve Watling

As well as a softer vision of the Stones, these photos allow a glimpse at an individuality that goes far beyond the band.

Please Kill Me

Tosh Berman

the Rolling Stones were at the height of their greatness, musically, when these photographs were taken [...]In a quaint and somewhat innocent manner, this book captures the Stones in a semi-domestic mood, as they see their work become rewarded by expensive cars and good homes.

Featured image, of Mick Jagger at home in 1966, is reproduced from Goin’ Home with the Rolling Stones ’66: Photographs by Gered Mankowitz, the new release from Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin and Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs publisher Reel Art Press. Collecting 100 previously unpublished photos, both sweet and strange, by the band's good friend and official photographer at the time, this book "is a rock version of the very best of the Hollywood issues of Architectural Digest," in the words of the Rolling Stones’ legendary manager, Andrew Loog Oldham. He continues: "I recall when Gered first suggested shooting the boys at home, not being that interested in the idea—if only because the idea of a comfy Stones ran a total opposite to the rock ’n’ roll Clockwork Orange episode we had been enjoying at the time. But the Stones were game and this work with Gered is a … great reminder of the time and the end of the innocence." continue to blog
