A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
Tony Sheridan's "Up and Down With The Rolling Stones" -
Bizarre, sycophantic and decadent with a ring of truth nonetheless..
Jon mate being that I am the worlds greatest tight arse that has been on my must read list for ages and even decided I will have to purchase it since it isnt in any of the regions libraries where I live. I just need to part with the cash now. If I buy it I will donate it to my local library and share the decadance with others.
Some good 'popcorn' reads:
In terms of sheer entertainment value, you can't beat Miss Pamela Desbarres' "I'm With The Band: Confessions of a Groupie". Not entirely sure how much is true, but the cast of characters is impressive and the events goofy and/or trashy enough to keep the pages turning.
I admit I was horribly entertained by "White Line Fever" by Lemmy. "Spinal Tap", only for real. I also enjoyed Nikki Sixx's "Heroin Diaries." Really don't care one way or another about the Crue, but it was a good read that didn't pull any punches.
Billy Thorpe book sounds very cool, Shermo! Will have to see if that was published in the US, or get it on my next trip to Oz.
Thats definitley one that gets good wraps Julie and I will have to keep an eye out for it. Pamela Desbarres is pretty famous and done what lots of girls only dreamed of doing in the seventies especialy where Led Zeppelin were concerned.
