'Stoned : A Memoir Of London In The 1960's' by Andrew Loog Oldham
St. Martin's Press 2001, hardcover with dustjacket, 374 pages, photographs.
In very good condition, ex-library with stamps etc, all pages clean.

The legendary manager of the Rolling Stones recalls his years with the band and his conscious and not-so-conscious efforts to shape the 1960s youth culture.

"In 1963, Andrew Loog Oldham was a precocious hustler of genius on the London scene, with a keen eye for the next look and a willingness to gamble on it. He was all of nineteen when Brian Epstein took him on to be the Beatles’ London press agent, and already regarded as someone who could make things happen. But it was when he went to hear a relatively unknown blues combo perform that Oldham found his true calling.

“I met the Rollin’ Stones,” he recalls simply, “and said hello to the rest of my life.”

He took on more than a band; he took on an irresistible force that, with his vision, would become the Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Band of All Time.

In addition to indelible portraits of Mick Jagger and crew, Stoned regales the reader with candid memories of John Lennon, Bob Dylan, and Marianne Faithfull - whom Oldham also created. Joined by contemporaries such as Pete Townshend, Vidal Sassoon, Diana Vreeland, Nik Cohn, and others who counted, Oldham gives us a privileged, brilliantly clear-eyed, and unmistakably authentic view back to where, for generations of music fans, things first started rolling."

"This is a GREAT book! It takes place in a time when London was producing film, fashion and music that would forever change people's lives then and now. This book is an absolute delight to read, particularly knowing it was coming directly from Andrew Loog Oldham himself. His style of writing and describing how events occurred is so unique and clever that I found myself re-reading pages instantly for the sheer pleasure of it, knowing that there are more fantastic stories to be read from a man who is one in a million!" ~Amazon
