About the Author

Tony Sanchez supplied drugs to the Stones throughout their heyday in the Sixties and Seventies. As such he was part of the inner sanctum, and became closer to the band than anyone ever has before or since.

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 !!!!!!

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.

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).

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!
