5.0 out of 5 stars Stupendous, April 9, 2010
This review is from: The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones (Paperback)
This isn't just the best book about the Stones ever written--much better than Robert Greenfield's--it's the best book about rock and roll I've ever read. It is as nitty gritty as it gets, so up close and personal that it sometimes hurts. One thing I got out of this great (and "great" isn't a word I throw around carelessly) book is how hard the Stones worked. Their touring/recording schedule was GRUELING. I would read fifty pages at a time and be EXHAUSTED vicariously afterwards. Once in a while Booth gets a bit too poetic for his own good but I was able to let it pass. His book gives you a backstage pass to all the fun and horror and will wring everything out of you you've got. It's like a scary midnight right and, tragically, you know what happens at the end of it and you pray that it won't. (I would have liked to have had just a bit more insight on Mick Taylor, the best guitarist the Stones ever had by far, but it's possible he just wasn't as interesting as Mick and Keef.) This book eventually will be considered a classic.
