Stone Alone: The Story of a Rock'n'Roll Band
Stone Alone: The Story of a Rock'n'Roll Band
by Bill Wyman
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars good luck bill, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It started off really well with vivid recollections of his home in south London and some of the awful/ joyful times that he lived through, some stories honestly re told of relationships with other musicians and an excellent recall of detail and quickly decended into a round of concerts/ hotel rooms/ shagging which became quite boring after a while but there are so few books like it that I forgive him for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good reminder of some of their lesser known pieces., 12 Jun 2014

This review is from: Relics (Audio CD)
I had this album once before in cassette form but it broke some years before and I had forgotten just how good it was, especially "Juliet Dream" I was also fortunate to see them several times starting on January 18th 1969 at the roundhouse when they performed a little known piece called"Turn on the tap Zap" it was awful and almost put me off, a few months later I saw them at Dunstable Civic and as the press reviews of the time said"they played like Gods" and they did, including all their well know melodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars the good, the bad and the mediocre, 19 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the first cd is sublime, peppered with wonderful orchesrations and beautifully played by the most gifed players of their day also some sentimental songs, I know where I`m going, the rest was a woeful tale of why british pop went so badly wrong in the early 60`s and worth a listen if just for that.

DVD was for the wrong DVD region so would not play. Suggest that you should make this clear when advertising.
