Ronnie Wood's Smile: And Where It Led based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
I read this book straight through from 1 am til 9 am one night! What a book! As a starry eyed stones fan, how can you not love it?! The way she recreated the concerts is just amazing, I can feel my heart beating faster when she mentions things like 'Moving to the small stage' or 'Oh, she'll like that' (Her backstage pass phone call). The feeling I get at the concerts is like nothing else, and you captured it perfectly. I couldn't reccomend this book any higher, it's a must read for Stones Fans, Ronnie Fans, or Music fans alike. I just couldn't put it down.....
This terrific book is full of revealing, detailed portraits, and the expressive accounts of the concerts themselves are rivaled only by Mullen's insights into the meaning of the highs and lows of rock star obsession. It also made me go back and listen to every Rolling Stones track I own--and helped me achieve new understanding of the dynamic musicianship of this quintessential group. You'll love it.
'Wendy Mullen is probably the world's leading expert on Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones. She writes with humor, intelligence, insight and a cinematic eye for detail. She brings the knowledge of a scholar and the passion of a rock and roller to her work. Any fan of the Stones, or anyone with an interest in popular culture, will enjoy this delightful book.' Eric Hamburg, author of 'JFK, Nixon, Oliver Stone and Me'
