    This is a great Book!

    It's a really good overview of The Rolling Stones from the Beginning of their formation up until their 40th anniversary. However, there needs to be updated book written about The Rolling Stones as they are approaching their 50th anniversary and I am sure that alot has happened in the last ten years on the Band since this book has been written!

    'Bell flight 14 you now can land!' - dynamite book!

    Well remember that famous line in 'Performance?' 'When you come down to it the performance that makes it that really makes it all the way is the one that achieves total madness!' What a prophetic utterance by Mick Jagger. The film was so depraved in the content matter that it moved James Fox to leave the acting profession for nearly ten years by joining 'The Navigators' a Christian outreach ministry. This book is truly the definitive biography of the most arcane and bizarre group in rock history. The degree of arcane is remarkable, the conclusions are deft and the objectivity is very accurate. A must read for all devotees of the group and what is apparent very quickly is the 'rock' of decorum by Charlie Watts. No wonder Mick Taylor left so quickly and frankly since 1973 what? 'Only Rock and roll' and 'Shattered' - Doesn't get any better and the talent we all posses that is on loan from God is in the end what molds all our lives - so brillant were the records 1965-73 and oh the geriatric parody the remaining Stones have become. Harv Kubernik, Saul Davis and Bob Sherman - too many years fellow 'stoners' -
