"Great and funny insight into the Stones 60s concerts." - Amazon Review
"Fabulous book that takes you right back to the era." - Amazon Review
"The book is fab, the stories tell the history of those days. I have all of Richards books, this one is where my heart was, and is, mad on The Rolling Stones, especially the founder Brian Jones. My story is there, I hope my kids keep the book. The newly edited version is excellent it makes it more readily available to the public. Follow the story through from those very early days when Brian worked so hard to get the group, (yes group, not band) started, to his sad decline, its very important that Brian is not forgotten. This book tells of the fun and the passion we had for the Rolling Stones in the early days each story is unique it's the fans that tell the stories, but Richards research and love of the best ever band cannot be overlooked." - Amazon Review
"Houghton’s lifelong passion for the Stones pays off. It gives him the edge in eliciting first hand recollections full of warmth and authenticity. He presents these stories carefully in the context of the history he knows so well, as few of us do, of the earliest days of the Stones. A record of their reception when they first appeared that no Stones fan should miss." - Amazon Review
"Yes a lot of people were there and this book very much conveys the spirit and energy of those times. A good read for fans of the greatest rock band ever" - Amazon Review
