This iconic photograph of Mick Jagger performing in his glittering white jumpsuit was used on the cover of the July 14th, 1972 issue of LIFE that included the story on this tour, accompanied by a number of his other shots.
Jim Marshall photographed the Rolling Stones 1972 American Tour (A.K.A. "Stones Touring Party" or "STP") on special assignment for Life Magazine. Marshall joined the Stones that year both before they embarked, while they were in the recording studio putting the finishing touches on their landmark double album Exile on Main Street, and then again during the West Coast leg as they kicked off this blockbuster US Tour.
Jim Marshall Rolling Stones 1972:
For the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary in 2012, Jim Marshall Photography LLC published a book of Jim’s photographs from their 1972 tour and released a selection of previously unavailable Rolling Stones photographs for collectors.
In 2022, on the 60th anniversary of the band, and the 50th anniversary of this legendary tour, Jim Marshall Photography LLC has reissued the book with more imagery and new essays by Anton Corbijn and Nikki Sixx.
