5.0 out of 5 stars If you loved the Band you will love this book, 15 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Testimony (Hardcover)
If you loved the Band you will love this book. It tells Robbie's story from first memory to the Last Waltz. He has already started the next book on what follows the Last Waltz.Testimony is just under 500 pages and draws from the Band's time with Ronnie Hawkins (as the Hawks), with Dylan going electric, the clubhouse concept of the Basement, Robbie becoming a songwriter, the success of their albums, struggles to keep the Band from "distractions" and finally all good things coming to and end - going out with a bang with the epic "The Last Waltz. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stones Keep on Rolling, 19 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Rolling Stones: Fifty Years is real page turner. Well written, extensively researched by Christopher Sandford who has previously written biographies on Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Any story of the Stones is really about the great creative force of Jagger and Richards, and how they have sustained the band despite the great differences in their own personalities. The other players - Jones, Watts, Wyman, Taylor, Wood - and their part in the history are also well documented in the book. Interesting stories on managers, wives and girlfriends, supporting musicians, drug dealers, groupies, and assorted hangers on makes it difficult to put the book down.
The big business side of the Stones is fascinating. Their legend and wealth continues long after their creative peak thirty years ago.
Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Top of the Town for Townshend, 4 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
Pete Townshend's Antholgy is a 2 cd collection of the best of his non-Who recordings. I was familiar with his songs on the Rough Mix album released in 1977 with Ronnie Lane, a number of which are on this 2005 release, but mostly unaware of his solo albums.

Anthology's 34 tracks is a great way to quickly come up to speed with the great range and quality of his solo output. There are no dud tracks. It certainly whets the appetite to discover more of his work. My only gripe is that the glossy booklet with the CD does not reference the tracks back to Townshend's albums, no reference to a date songs were recorded and the supporting musicians are not acknowledged.

I recommend Anthology, shame about the booklet.
