Thanks to everyone who attended the recent events in New York and Philadelphia. If you can't make it to an event, you can still purchase (unsigned) copies of "Under Their Thumb" (featuring the original book + 40 new pages of text + 33 never-before-seen bonus photos) at your favorite bookstore, as well as on sites such as Amazon.

From Bill German:

Thanks to everyone who came to my “Under Their Thumb” presentations through the years. (I started doing them in 2009, when the book first came out as a hardcover.) It's been a blast meeting so many of you, and I'm thrilled to have more events lined up for 2022, to coincide with the updated version of the book in paperback.

I’d also like to thank the venues who hosted my events. Too many to list them all (nearly a hundred!), but they include bookstores (like Barnes & Noble in New York, Book Soup in L.A., and the now-defunct Borders in Philly), as well as college campuses (at Villanova, Wisconsin, Adelphi, NYU) and a ton of wonderful public libraries (who need your support!) in cities like New York, San Francisco, Baltimore, Chicago, Washington, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and San Antonio.

Not to mention the “non-conventional places” that were open-minded enough to welcome a bunch of crazed Rolling Stones fans to come hear me speak – like the Brooklyn Museum, the San Francisco Art Exchange, and even Temple Israel of Great Neck (Long Island).

All because a sixteen-year-old kid started a Stones fanzine out of his bedroom! I’m grateful to everyone for the ongoing support!
