Sympathy For Greenfield?,
This review is from: Exile on Main St: A Season in Hell with the Rolling Stones (Paperback)
Purchased this book, duly logged on to Amazon and read the reviews - felt slightly despondent initially but never the less have dived headlong into this fascinating tale of debauchery, excess, tax evasion and almost as an afterthought, the making of a much lauded double album from The Stones.
Forget if you will the more negative reviews for this text and allow yourself to be transported to Villa Nellcote in 1971 - Keith is slowly going off his rocker, Jagger's just got hitched, Bill and Charlie wait patiently for The Glimmer Twins to get to work and poor Mick Taylor's is slowly being driven into a meltdown.
Add to this the bedroom shenanigans of Anita and various hangers on and you've got yourself a page turner.
My only complaint with this book is when Greenfield uses valuable page space to have a pop at other Stones biographers - but hey if you're keen to get your ''Rocks Off'' and get ''Happy'' reading an engrossing account of a band at their creative peak then purchase at once!
