A Prince Among Stones
By

Rating
In 1968 Mick Jagger couldn't understand why the Rolling Stones had no money. The man he asked to 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 forty years Prince Rupert worked with the Stones as 'a combination of bank manager, psychiatrist and nanny', usually enthralled but often bemused and exasperated. Coolly impartial, dryly humorous, this is a refreshingly different take on the rock'n'roll world from within its inner sanctum.

About the Author

Born in Palma, Majorca in 1933, Prince Rupert Loewenstein lived in London and Paris, and studied medieval history at Oxford before becoming a stockbroker for the American firm Bache & Co. In 1963 he formed a consortium that bought the merchant bank Leopold Joseph & Sons. Five years later he met Mick Jagger and managed The Rolling Stones' finances until 2008. Prince Rupert lives in Petersham, near Richmond, with his wife, Princess Josephine; they have three children.

Reviews

This book is far more than a footnote to the Rolling Stones; it is an elegantly written account of how two cultures came together -- Lynn Barber * Sunday Times * This is one of the funniest rock books I've read, fuelled, in the way only an aristocrat's memoir could be, by a sense of cheery entitlement and the random pursuit of amusement for its own sake * New Statesman * Unusually frank, enjoyable * Daily Mail *
