Rolling Stones book is latest effort for rocker

For a guy who has dubbed himself “Part-Time Man of Rock” Bill Janovitz is awfully busy.

On Thursday he will celebrate the release of his superb new solo album, “Walt Whitman Mall,” with a show at the Lizard Lounge. On Saturday the band he’s fronted for more than 25 years, Buffalo Tom, plays for free on Boston Common as part of the Outside the Box Festival. And on July 23, St. Martin’s Press will release “Rocks Off: 50 Tracks That Tell the Story of the Rolling Stones,” his second book about Mick and Keith and the boys. The following night Janovitz will do a reading at Newtonville Books.
