3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad...not good., January 8, 2000
This review is from: Jagger Unauthorized (Hardcover)
Christopher Anderson's book on Jagger is strange. On one hand, Anderson seems to have stolen much of his material from other sources. Oh sure, he gives them all the appropriate credits, but it's still a letdown. Anderson never actually interviewd Jagger for this book. On the other hand, Anderson has some good stuff in here. It's Jagger at his sleaziest, but that can be entertaining. And Anderson does uncover some witnesses to Jagger's life that do provide original material for the book. The book attempts to portray Jagger as scandalous and selfish, which he indeed appears to be. There are plenty of books written on Mick Jagger that are better than this, and plenty that are worse.

1.0 out of 5 stars A huge dissapointment., January 8, 2000
Mick Fleetwood, the famous drummer for Fleetwood Mac, one of the most popular bands of all time, has written this book on his years with the band. However, as Fleetwood says, he spent over 8 million dollars on cocaine during the time, and it's obvious: Fleetwood seems extremely sullen, depressed, gloomy, and boring in his retelling of what was probably one of the most fascinating bands in the history of rock and roll. It's obvious that he never wrote down any sort of diary during his 20 years with the band, and that his mind is so shot that he can't remember most of what happened, either. Why was this book written? Where did this book go so wrong? Probably by having a drummer who has no sense of humor and whose mind is fried from drug-use try to be the teller of the story of Fleetwood Mac. An awful book that I expected would be fascinating and entertaining. I mean, how could a book written by someone who was in Fleetwood Mac be bad? Well, this one was. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite book ever!, January 8, 2000
What makes this book so amazing? Author Stanley Booth captures the most popular rock band of all time by actually being there with the band as a friend, through some of the most memorable moments in the history of music: Booth is there at Altamont when a spectator is killed by the Hell's Angels (and Booth appears in the movie on the concert), he's there when Jimi Hendrix is with the Rolling Stones backstage, he's there when Janis Joplin is playing before the Stones come on, he's there when the Stones are hanging out with Chuck Berry, he hangs out in a recording studio when the Stones record, and he goes to London to view Brian Jones' grave and goes to Jones' parents' home to interview them. Booth is like a ghost that will always be there in the soul of music and of the Rolling Stones. This book should be required reading in college writing courses to teach young writers how to write with excitement and reality. Every page is a masterpiece!
