Go For Broke: Volume I, a visual history depicting five decades of concert performances by The Rolling Stones as seen through the eyes of one photographer.
The book presents a "no access" view of the band. The story begins in 1975 in Boston during the "Tour of the Americas" and continues to the current era with images from Paris during the "No Filter " tour in 2017. Go For Broke is an extraordinary journey of photographs. It is a story of a life spent traveling and documenting one of the most important bands of all time...The Rolling Stones.
The book features 276 full page photographs. The images were captured during attendance at 132 concerts in over 100 cities in thirteen countries. The photographs were taken during each Rolling Stones tour since 1975, spanning 22 touring eras.
The pictures will take you to fields, stadiums, theaters, and arenas. From audiences large and small, from small joints to huge extravaganzas photographer Curt Angeledes has captured the band in all its mythological glory; raw, appealing and joyous.
Presented in both black and white and color, the photographs offer a rare glimpse of the band in performance with a perspective not often seen. You might see a side view, an odd pose, Mick might be looking away or Keith may have his back to you. you will not be viewing the Stones in a controlled setting. There is no control when the show starts and Angeledes captures these fractured seconds. From front of stage to distant shots each photo gives a strong sense of documentation and candid views. The photographs are introduced with tales of travel and adventure. Each decade represented is a stunning portrayal of the band on stage.

His images have also been published in Rolling With The Stones by Bill Wyman (2002), Love You Live by Marilu Regan (2002), The New Barbarians: Outlaws, Gunslingers and Guitars by Rob Chapman (2017) and The Rolling Stones Every Album, Every Song 1963-1980 Steve Pilkington (2019)
