Book Description

1 Aug 2003
The Rolling Stones. A band who spawned a thousand imitators. They took "rock 'n' roll" and shaped it in their own image and to heights that no other act of this or any other age has ever been able to climb to. There are many myths and truths, but nobody got as close to the Stones during their unprecedented rise as Tony Sanchez. In this volume he reveals the truth about: the band's first tentative experiments with drugs; how Keith Richards attacked one of his suppliers with a sword; how he later had a change of blood to come off heroin; and how they lived one step ahead of the law despite their massive and conspicuous intake of drugs.

If you have already bought Up and down with the Rolling Stones by the same author, then dont buy this book. It is exactly the same book, just with a different title, it states this inside the book. The book is good, but i think its a bad thing to do, basically its a con to get you to buy the same book twice, just by changing the title. Shame on you Mr Sanchez !!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars ROLLING THUNDER 25 Aug 2006
Hilarious, uproarious, brilliant, tragic, unmissable inside story of rock n' roll's original madmen. For me, even better than Keith Moon 'Dear Boy' I stayed awake all through the night, keeping the missus awake with laughter. Warning: it makes drugs seem really, really cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was hooked! 22 April 2008
Admittedly, this was my first book on The Stones so i don't have a whole lot to compare it to-but I enjoyed this immensly. If you like reading rock n roll biographies and have ever foot tapped along with Mick, Keith and the boys, then buy this book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sensational reading but... 27 Oct 2006
It's a well known fact that Sanchez's book was part fact and part his own view of things which at times... well... it was a little distorted. Even Richards admitted to that.

It makes a good read though and it gets quite tender at times, especially regarding the description of Marianne Faithfull.

However, I disagree about the fact that it glorifies drugs. To the contrary, I felt really sorry for all the sad incidents due to drug taking. If anything, it takes off all the myths and haze surrounding them (if they still do exist today).
