Fifty years ago today The Rolling Stones played their first gig at London's Marquee Club, earning themselves a tidy 30 quid.

To celebrate I have a copy of 50 Years: The Rolling Stones Views from the Inside, Views from the Outside by Hanspeter Künzler to give away to one lucky reader.

It's an e-book with a difference, much of the material has never been seen before and the book is over 2000 pages with over 150 images.

''It's not only a journey through 50 years of the Rolling Stones,'' says publisher Matthias Wurfl, ''but also the history and evolution of music, press and western society of the last half century.''

To enter the draw to win a copy of this e-book, email me at and include your favourite Mick Jagger commandment from above in the subject line.

Entries close at 5pm on Friday, July 20. (If you don't win you can buy it on Amazon and iTunes.)
