Mar 28, Karen rated iian really liked it Shelves: Jul 16, Slim Evans rated it really liked it. Hard to find, I think, but highly recommended! A riotously funny, fiercely energetic romp, this no-holds-barred autobiography takes readers through the highs and lows of an extraordinary career, chronicling nearly four decades of dynamic music history.
The Faces and The Rolling Stones really liked cocaine.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Want to Read saving…. I am sorry that I only got around to reading this book after the death of Ian, in the last few years he has been instrumental in keeping the music and memory of the Small Faces and Ronnie Lane in the public eye. Tells not all, but enough to confirm the long held suspicion that The A,l had as much fun as anyone in rock and roll.
And that’s how this story reads. Great read, and account ixn what it was like playing organ with Small Faces in swinging London touring with The Faces,The Stones, and surviving an addiction to freebase cocaine.

Gordon rated it it was amazing Nov 14, In the s everyone who was anyone was named Keith, Mick, Mac, or Woody. Apr 11, Tye rated it really liked it. It made it tricky to keep everyone straight. Good in parts, but I have to say that I did get bored with the endless accounts of drinks and drugs.
Feb 29, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: Did finish in January ! No trivia or quizzes yet.
None are particularly deep, but they can get repetitive and boring. I also got turned onto the Small Ghe while reading this anytime he would mention an album, like “Ogden’s”I would listen to it as I was reading.
I read this book immediately after reading Levon Helm’s “This Wheel’s on Fire”, and it amazing how similar the tone and humor are in these two books- especially consider one is from Marvell, Arkansas and the other from Middlesex, England.
