In 1976 The Rolling Stones were the greatest rock band on Earth. To prove it, they set off on their now legendary European Tour ‘76, often known as the “Starf*cker” tour, in part due to the extraordinary lotus-shaped stage they played on.
Along the way they invented stadium rock, and, onstage and off, set a standard for decadence, excess, and sheer rock 'n’ roll anarchy that has yet to be surpassed.
Commissioned by the Observer to record the rollercoaster tour at its zenith - the concerts at London’ Earls Court from 21-27 May - was Nobby Clark. The result is a unique visual record, by one of the best photographers in Britain, of the greatest rock n’ roll band on the planet cementing their place in music history.
Featuring over 120 colour and black & white pictures, Starf*cker is a timeless photographic document of the Stones at their inimitable peak.
