Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a paean to a lost age of wild rock'n'roll and decadent rock'n'roll journalism -- Louis Wise * Sunday Times - Music Book of the Year 2017 * Allan Jones's wildly entertaining account of observing the excesses and eccentricities of rock stars at close quarters throughout the boom years of the 1970s and 80s, and barely hanging on to his health and sanity in the process. -- Richard Wise * The Guardian * Allan Jones' collection of stories lovingly evoke the hell and hedonism of music journalism at the peak of rock'n'roll's excess -- Dylan Jones * GQ Magazine * Encounters of the Crazy Kind -- Victoria Segal * The Sunday Times *
