Biography
Translation in progress

In 1975, Christopher Simon Sykes received a phone call from Mick Jagger, a personal friend, inviting him to document the Rolling Stones on their upcoming 40-show Tour Of The Americas '75, a.k.a T.OT.A. '75 . According to Sykes, “'I had absolutely free and total access. I was in a very privileged position because I'd come to keep a diary, I'd been recommended by Rupert Lowenstein and I knew Mick. I was more of a friend than a rock photographer." 

Sykes dove head first into the assignment by photographing every aspect of the tour, keeping a daily diary, even collecting memorabilia such as backstage passes, the tour manager's newsletters, even hotel keys. The resulting photographs are an insider's view of the grueling and infamously decadent life on the road for 'The Greatest Rock 'n Roll Band in the World'.
