Prince Rupert Loewenstein, a descendant of the Bavarian roayl house of Wittelsbach and a managing director of the merchant bank Leopold Joseph, was introduced to Mick Jagger through a mutual friend. Could he, Mick Jagger wondered, help restore the Stones' fortunes? In the band's popularity, and indeed in their music, Prince Rupert discerned the dissolution of the old order: the new rich would be rock stars, although the new music was, to his ears, inexplicably raucous.

Needs more Rolling Stones and less Prince Rupert. I am sure most fans are reading this because of the band and not their money manager. A quick read and now I know more about German royalty than I ever needed to.
