LONDON, April 1 (UPI) -- "Stu," a new limited-edition book, offers an unprecedented look at late Rolling Stones founding member Ian Stewart.

"It was basically his band," Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards said of Stewart in the book.

A founding member who came before both Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts, Stewart left the limelight in 1963, but remained the group's pianist, road manager and blues conscience until his death following a stroke in 1985, Rolling Stone magazine said.

In addition to playing on Stones albums like "Aftermath" and "Let It Bleed," all the way through 1983's "Emotional Rescue," Stewart played on classic recordings like Led Zeppelin's "Physical Graffiti," Howlin' Wolf's "The London Howlin' Wolf Sessions," and Pete Townshend and Ronnie Lane's "Rough Mix," the magazine said.

Privately published by Out-Take Limited in an edition of 950 leatherbound copies, "Stu" offers tales of Stewart's life with the band, plus more than 500 illustrations, including Stewart's own rarely seen photos of the Stones at work and play.
