Well I just found this book fascinating and couldn't put it down!

Well written memoir of Stones employee, Tony Sanchez, through the height of their fame. While there has been some bickering over it's authenticity, I think any Rolling Stones fan would agree it rings true. Nothing here to scare the horses, and Tony is a congenial story teller

I first read this in the '70s, shortly after it was published. I took it as gospel at the time and I probably cooled my love affair with the Stones quite a bit over it. I still love their music of course, that will never change.
Now 40 years or so later ... I find that a lot of what Mr. Sanchez had to say was crap, that the "blood cure" for Keith Richard (at the time he did not use the "s" ... which I also remember) was a medical impossibility and according to many others, simply not true, and that Tony S. had an agenda which others verified. So I decided to purchase it for less than $5 on Amazon and re-visit.
Good grief, did I really take this drivel as true? It's basically fan fiction written about the Stones by someone who happened to kinda sorta know them. Every darn person in the band or involved has soul baring inner thoughts and feeling interpreted by the author. Yeah so it's a novel. It is NOT a biography or tell-all memoir by someone in the know. It's fiction based on some events that did occur.
Is it interesting reading? Yes and no. Halfway through I was done with the long, rambling looks into what Tony Sanchez thought Keith or Marianne or Mick or Anita or Bianca were thinking at any given time in history, and stopped. Up until the aforementioned supposed "heroin blood cure" I was interested, but ehh. Glad I got it so cheap. ;)

The author adds in almost every sleazy detail of the Stone's hedonistic lifestyle, warts and all. I'm Sanchez could have written even worse stuff and most of it true, if not for the legal reasons but I'll never know, as it is this book has plenty of tales that he himself saw while being a member of the Stones inner circle. If you don't want your lofty opinion of this legendary rock ban ruined, you might want to steer clear - but for sleaze freaks like myself who eat this stuff up, it's dam near perfect. Exactly the style of writing I'm looking for, border-line litigious, and this book (mostly) delivers.

My first memory of the Rolling Stones must of been the early eighties when they released " Start me up" , I was a young kid and my Dad was so excited to see them back! So I really had no idea about their early years and hadd only acquired vague preconceptions about them such as Mick Jaggers legendary lips, Keith Richards drug habit, someone called Brian Jones having drowned and Marianne Faithfull being a very old woman of 40ish who once went out with Mick Jagger! Well I just found this book fascinating and couldn't put it down! Who knew that things were so wild in the 60's what with witchcraft, orgies, concerts where people were killed by the Hells Angels, massive drug habits and police raids. I found myself sympathising with Brian Jones and telling everyone who would listen (my parents) what a terrible person that Mick Jagger is . Just a great read , a page turner and fascinating look at a bygone era where the term "sex , drugs and rock and roll " seems like a massive understatement.

I really enjoyed the book. But then again I am a Rolling Stones music lover. How much is actual truth, how much is exaggeration and how much is out of context myth...I don't know but it excites the reader and in some cases sickens them. A sort of newspaper look account (sordid, petty details, scandal) of the time this guy spent around one of the most famous and legendary rock n roll bands the world has ever had. In reality they were just young lads having fun, writing fabulous music, a love of blues, being silly, getting drunk, taking drugs and acting up. They were young guys having fun....which at times became more serious problems.....much of the Stones reputation is of course a mix of exaggerated media myth with little truth, hype and truth..it sells records and much is just people's take on what happened when they were around them. Much were just things that happened around them but their only connection was, that they were there (Altamont speedway open air concert for example). They were a band of the times and the rebellion of the 60's...this easy to read and captivating..it transports you into their world and tells a colourful tale of drugs, sex and rock n roll. So if that is your bag then read away.

A great book and wild. 2nd copy I bought because my old paper was gone.

An interesting read and mostly true I'm sure. This book has been around quite a while and now I know where some of the Stones stories I've heard, or read, come from. Anyway, as a long time small potatoes musician myself and a guy that literally grew up listening to Stones music these are the types of books that interest me. Worthwhile addition to my collection.
Couldn't put it down! It's a wonder they didn't have more deaths as much out of control their drug problems were. Very interesting read. Love the Rolling Stones though!
