I read the first one some years back and was disappointed as it didn't cover the Stones' breakthrough years. This does tho and it's a great document on 60s rock and roll. Insightful into the cultivation of the image of the Stones, in no small point down to Oldham force of personality. Brutally honest with himself at times, a large part of the book is made up of recollections from other key players.

Wow, was this ever a fun read! I felt like I was right there with Andrew, managing the Rolling Stones in their glory days in the 60's. He's a great writer, very witty and clever and funny. Sometimes I wasn't quite sure what he was talking about, but that was part of the fun. Great attention to wardrobe throughout!
Loved it. I've read all his books. Couldn't put them down. This man has lived an interesting life, but you can also feel his pain and see how much the firing by the Rolling Stones has affected his life...Sad story in ways. I can only imagine what a ride it must have been when he was with the Stones.
Great tales of excess, triumph and tragedy, however his style of writing was far too pretentious and flowery, for me anyway.

Recommends it for: lovers of London via the 60's
The second volume of Andrew Loog Oldman's masteripiece. Here we get the inside world of the Rolling Stones as well as other movers and shakers of that great decade (the 60's). Mod culture at its best.
