A unique book, born of an unlikely meeting. The photography and reminiscences of the former Rolling Stone, Bill Wyman. In 1971 all the members of The Rolling Stones moved to the South of France, where they recorded the classic album Exile on Main Street. They moved abroad as a temporary measure, but Bill ended up staying there for a dozen years. He bought a plot of land, built a house, and then found himself near to the great artist Marc Chagall. At this time Chagall was in his late eighties, but he and Bill quickly established a warm friendship, meeting often for afternoon tea. As well as candid and charming shots of Chagall, an extensive personal selection of Bill's other photography down the years is also included. The author also reflects at length on his friendship with Chagall and his life as a Rolling Stone in the South of France. Wyman Shoots Chagall is accompanied by a special CD, including solo material that has never been commercially released. 1,500 copies bound in quarter-leather and canvas with slipcase.
