Rolling Stones - Hot Stuff showcases author Matt Lee's huge collection of Rolling Stones memorabilia, spanning all decades, and tells the story of the Stones in a unique way.
Matt Lee has been collecting Rolling Stones memorabilia for more than two decades. He amassed so much that he had to move house; he now has his own private museum dedicated to Stones memorabilia and he is the Guinness World Record holder for the largest Stones memorabilia collection. For the first time, Rolling Stones - Hot Stuff showcases his collection, which spans all decades, and tells the story of the Stones through their memorabilia as never before.
Matt Lee is an avid collector of Rolling Stones memorabilia, described byAnOther magazine as 'the world's number one collector'. At the Rolling Stones' exhibition at London's Saatchi Gallery, the band borrowed various items from Matt's collection to fill their gaps. He has seen them play live more than 150 times and has appeared on radio, print and TV in his capacity as 'biggest Stones fan of all time' [ITV], expert and talking head. He was in the news in 2018 following his discovery of a long-lost Mick Jagger/Carly Simon recording.
