During the height of the Rolling Stones' success, Bill Wyman kept a diary, recoding the churning chaos of the band's creative evolution, power plays, recording sessions, tours, romances, drug busts, and financial disarray. Stone Alone is a meticulous, shrewd and humorous look at the complex personalities of the Stones and the role they played in the startling cultural revolution of the times.

Dear Bill.
My name is Leslie I took care of you and Astrid at the house in Woodstock in1977, I had a little girl then, her name was Pearl. She was 3 years old. She and you used to do hunting
for newts in the stream behind the house,which belonged to Todd Rundgren. She always insisted to you that they were called salamanders. I don't think you ever came to an agreement on that. Todd produced "Bat out of Hell" by an entertaner by the name of MEAT LOAF. However Pearl's biological father was a man named Clark Pierson, who was Janis Joplin's drummer on an album named "PEARL" .Hence we named her Pearl.
Pearl is 33 years old now. She is ROCK CHILD. I would love for you to hear her work. She tours with her own band,"PEARL", and has opened for VELVET REVIVER as well as Meat Loaf at Wembley as well as other venues, in Europe and here in the States.
I married Meat in 1979, divorced him in 2004, Meat adopted her in1982, So her full name now is Pearl Maria Aday. Her Godmother is Maria Muldaur. I would like for her to meet you some day, Her fiance' is Scott Ian who plays with a band called ANTRAX. You would love him. You would love Pearl very much too.
All the best,
Leslie Gay Edmonds Aday...... Although you may remenber me as "ANGEL" I was in that photograph with you and the boys in'69 in California. The one with the motorcycle. I was 18 years old.Love ya Lots, Les
