Secker & Warburg, Oct 15, 2002 - Biography & Autobiography - 474 pages
The best book ever written on the Rolling Stones by the man who discovered and managed them -- coincides with the band's 40th anniversary tour. "Playing God was just my sideline, actually. Getting records cut was my principal business." In 1963, in a south London hotel, Andrew Loog Oldham discovered an unknown blues band called the Rolling Stones and became their manager and producer. In his first book, Stoned, he recorded his early years and the meeting with the Stones that changed all their fates. By 1967 the Stones had achieved world-wide celebrity and split with the manager who made them.2Stonedis the story of that exciting period in the band's history -- from 1964 to 1967. Nik Cohn, Marianne Faithfull, David Bailey and Pete Townshend are among those who contribute to this compelling portrait of the golden period when Andrew Loog Oldham and the Rolling Stones were invincible.
