Format: Hardcover
As a child of the late fifties, I'm old enough to remember the Rolling Stones' music first time around, but I was too young then to have any inlking of the social revolution that was underway, soundtracked by the Beatles/Stones et al as they swept away the old guard of safe pop music your mom liked. This is a superb first-hand account from a man who was not only right in the heart of the action, but causing a fair chunk of it himself. Oldham writes with the panache you would expect of an arch pop publicist, and the book is also well served by some equally telling contributions from other sharp observers of the time - some well known, some not. But they all have an interesting tale to tell.
It's difficult not to warm to the author, regardless of the scrapes and states he got himself (and others) into, because he relates his take on events with a disarming honesty throughout, shot through with a wry sense of the absurd. What the reader gets as a result is a well written eye-witness account of a musical revolution in progress. Whether you're young or old, it sets the music in the context of its time, spiced with some glorious anecdotes. And best of all, it makes you want to listen to all that fabulous music (and not just the Stones' stuff) all over again. For anyone with any feeling for the times, the music, or both, this book is indispensible.

Format: Hardcover
This could be better than having been there (like it says about the DVD of the 1970 isle of wight festival - certainly safer and more comfortable, anyway) Andrew Loog Oldham has taken self-destructive testing further that any man still alive, and he's written two of the best books ever on the post-war generation which spawned pop & rock. I can't wait for the third in this tri-biography, which also includes contributions from other protagonists like Allen Klein, Keith Richard and Pete Townshend.
Searingly honest, brilliantly & originally written. I was a nice boy; a Beatles baby, but these books illuminate the times like no others, and are the testament of the man who started The Stones rolling - and let's face it, it's a successful formula which continues to this day.

I am just finishing Stoned by Andrew Loog Oldham and am alternately mesmerised and in fits of laughter over the amazing feats performed by ALO in the pursuit of image and art. If 2Stoned is just as good this is a rare treat! For those interested ( qs I am) in how the 60s spawned a rare generation of beatniks,poets, and weirdos, then this is a guided tour of that world. A fantastic jewel of history in the midst of the recent 'dumbing down' and mediocrity of the current arts world. I'm glad I lived through this amazing time.
