The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year with shows in London and New Jersey, new music and a new photo book. The publication, Rolling Stones 50, was released last week; it chronicles the band's epic rise from pub group to stadium giants and includes outtakes from the early-morning Between the Buttons album cover shoot ("We had been recording all night at Olympic Studios," recalls Charlie Watts), Seventies party Polaroids and live shots of their mega-tours, from Tattoo You to A Bigger Bang. Click through to check out some of the book's best photographs.
