In this aptly titled tome, journalist Steven Kurutz relates a year in the lives of two rival New York-based Rolling Stones tribute bands: Sticky Fingers and the Blushing Brides. The subject of copycat acts has been covered in various media almost as extensively as the Jagger/Richards songbook, and Kurutz doesn’t offer any fresh insights. But Like a Rolling Stone is still a funny, poignant look at people who may believe that, to quote the Blushing Brides singer, they ”kick the Rolling Stones’ asses live” — though they have to do so at an Elks Lodge. It’s only a book about fake rock & roll, but we like it. B+
