Rolling Stones financial adviser reveals all

Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger just can't get no satisfaction with the band's former financial adviser, who has written a tell-all book about his time with the band.

Prince Rupert Loewenstein's book 'A Prince Among Stones' provoked a furious reaction from Jagger, who is unhappy with revelations about the band's personal financial affairs. 

Loewenstein was the Rolling Stones' financial adviser for 40 years, advising the band during their first experiences as tax exiles in France during the 'Exiles on Main Street' era and guiding them to their subsequent multi-million success.

Referred to at one time as "the human calculator", the Bavarian aristocrat describes himself as a combination of “bank manager, psychiatrist and nanny” to the band.
