review Dance With The Devil The Rolling Stones Their Times

Dance With The Devil The Rolling Stones Their Times review ☆ 3 Is thrilling account culminates with their final concert at Altamont Speedway a nightmare of beating stabbing and killing that would signal the end of a generation’s dreams of peace and freedom But while this book renders in fine detail the entire history of the Stones paying special attention to the tragedy of B. After years of circling this thing I have finally read the rock n roll book that makes all the rock n roll books look faint and puny No Almost Famous feel good picnics no Hammer of the Gods tabloid sleaze Some thoughts we ll be here for awhile Author Stanley Booth hit the road with the Stones in 1969 and that tour is the central story but he begins at the beginning These flashbacks narrated mostly by Keith Richards and Ian Stu Stewart put us right in the the cold dirty apartments and tour buses of the band s early years and remind us that these blues purists and later jet setters were English The early gigs were basically a string of riots played in those decaying pre war ballrooms Stu describes a Blackpool show crashed by Glaswegians spending all their dough on drink and looking for a fight in Germany they call them poison dwarves Stu tells us Booth who has a regional flair himself Jagger asks where to spend his mid tour break Eureka Springs in Arkansas Booth tells him appreciates a man who knows his turf Brian Jones haunts the book He might have faded badly down the stretch but we see him as the crucial free spirit force to set the whole enterprise in motion In one of his many journalistic coups Booth spends a surreal afternoon with Brian s parents in their Cheltenham parlor and looks at family photos of their famous dead son Thanksgiving 1969 at producer Jerry Wexler s house on Long Island with its Magrittes on the wall Booth rides the train back into town with Wexler s 80 year old mom who s disappointed Jerry didn t stick with journalism sees her into a cab at Penn Station and walks down the block to Madison Suare Garden where the Stones are about to do the first of the three shows that would be preserved on Get Yer Ya Yas Out Hendrix shows up backstage Mick Taylor gives Jimi his right handed but who cares guitar to play but Jagger who still resents Hendrix for once trying to steal Marianne Faithfull from him doesn t join in he silently does his mascara in the next dressing room A drunk Janis Joplin passes through Jimi sits behind Keith s amp for the actual show Later they all go to a party and Mick makes off with Hendrix s favorite groupie the legendary Devon Wilson I mean what a day The band goes to Muscle Shoals and records a few songs that will end up on Sticky Fingers two years later Original title of Brown Sugar Black Pussy Some might stiffen at Booth s nonchalance about the balling as well as his own infidelities But he is a Southern gentlemen and not even deep down and he instinctively as opposed to politically respects women There is a prescient sizing up of opening act Ike Turner as the devil to Tina s angel years before the abuse stuff came out Even rock stars have to eat Someone brings Chinese takeout no utensils so you eat it with popsicle sticks Or you want to eat at four in the morning too late for room service so you bribe the bellman to find some cheeseburgers but you just snorted two lines of H so you re too tired and nauseous to eat the burgers when they arrive In food vs drugs drugs win every time Over the course of the book their tour manager loses 21 pounds Charlie Watts the world s politest man Eight hours late to their Palm Beach gig Almost dawn when they get there cold they go on anyway Afterwards cocaine and breakfast On the flight back later that day the little prop plane needs a repair Jagger and Booth in these pre 911 days disembark wander down the tarmac and lie in the landing field grass I don t believe in the romance of misery or debauchery as essential to creativity Dostoevsky settled down to write all his big novels once his sane second wife cultivated some damn peace and uiet for him but standing in the shower one morning during my long month of living with this book I m a slow reader it occurred to me that the Stones art could only be the product of living outside the pale As Robert Stone said it was a hard music for a time of hard living You stagger out of this music Each chapter has its own epigraph clearly a labor of love for Booth Favorites are a series of uotes on the agony and ecstasy of jazz pioneer Buddy Bolden and a priceless discussion where Jerry Lee Lewis insists to Sam Phillips that oh yes they are playing the devil s music Like Gimme Shelter filmmakers the Maysles brothers who float in and out of the book Booth lucked into the big ending for his book with a front row seat at Altamont They all know it s bad the minute they arrive Hell s Angels are not just taking LSD but smearing it on their faces Bad omen even a 2 year old parents undetermined in the Stones s trailer tells Keith twice she s going to beat him up What impresses Booth the most about the Gomorrah esue crowd is its speed the way it opens and closes in a shot I had no idea people in a crowd could move so fast Jagger who attempts to appeal to them was offering the social contract to a twister of flailing dark shapes One of the running gags in the book is Booth s difficulties producing the publisher s contract to prove he belongs on the tour A harbinger as the book would take fifteen long years to materialize As he explains in a lengthy and disconcertingly bitter afterword Booth went off the rails with the drugs and depression complaints include an LSD induced back injury The first wife the intriguingly named Christopher who works for the long gone possibly fictitious Omega Airlines and strikes us as a bit of a saint but a fun saint was obviously a casualty Booth mentions that he was also along on the 1972 tour but that it was an ugly scene full of amyl nitrate uaaludes teuila sunrises cocaine heroin and too many pistoleros and it left me with material than I could ever use an enticing uote if ever there was one He made little money off this masterpiece after paying back the advance he may have actually lost money on it but seems to be proud of its rep out there He never wrote another book of anywhere near this one s stature One senses Booth has had a tough life That knowledge affects the way you look at him in Gimme Shelter dancing around with Mick and Keith in the Holiday Inn to the hot off the presses Brown Sugar Yeah that funny little guy if you ve seen the movie is Stanley Booth Brian Jones had just completed months of dental work in early 1969 so he had perfect teeth when he died

Dance With The Devil The Rolling Stones Their Times review ☆ 3 Stanley Booth a member of the Rolling Stones’ inner circle met the band just a few months before Brian Jones drowned in a swimming pool in 1968 He lived with them throughout their 1969 American tour staying up all night together listening to blues talking about music ingesting drugs and consorting with groupies H. Reading about the Stones makes me feel like the hero of the French comedy Brice de Nice a 30 something surfer who hangs around his waveless bay on the Mediterranean watching Point Break and waiting for the perfect swell Watching whoever is the latest craze on MTV doesn t help either the man made swells that power those stars are less awe inspiring than sad conjuring visions of a time when things were different picking away at the wound What the Stones did was to ride an uncontrollable wave from out of an unknown ocean and any book about them that claims to be than a litany a homage or just plain gossip should surely lead us to a greater understanding of the nature of that wave and that ocean Stanley Booth comprehends this challenge but ultimately does little than describe or suggest the feeling at the centre the sense of time standing still as the wave curls around you Yeah he was there he took the drugs and watched the daysmonthsyears slip away But in a way his book feels like a purgatory because what point in living that life without the release of being able to jump on stage or write a song or record it now and then He s not uite a Stone but not a civilian not entirely in the wave but unable to step out of it and see it from a distance And ultimately maybe he too has something of Brice de Nice about him a man waiting for a revelation that can never happen ListenMark Twain said if you wrote well enough your work would last forever and by forever I mean thirty years The True Adventures first published in the United States in 1984 has lasted slightly than one half of forever Whatever they are now or may be in the future the Rolling Stones when they were young put themselves in jeopardy many times because of who they were what they were how they lived what they believed During portions of those years I was with them Some people survived that era and some didn t The True Adventures is the story of those days when the world was younger and meanings were or seemed for a time to be clearer Almost forever ago I mean wow that s sad right Almost forever ago I feel that I really do And the guy can write no uestion But what does it amount to this half remembered transcript of a time when meanings seemed for a time to be clearer Not much it seems and I m sorry sorry for this kid who follows around a rock band as if he might find in them the substance necessary to animate his writing sorry for the older man who looks back on it and wonders what has slipped through his fingers Music writers it seems likely are often frustrated literary writers That Greil Marcus and Peter Guralnick who supposedly called Booth s book The one authentic masterpiece of rock n roll writing should so revere this piece of autobiography with scenery by the Stones perhaps says about their own aspirations to something beyond rock n roll writing than about the value of this book to people who care about rock n roll Yeah there s a neat summation of the Stones careers up to 1969 a couple of vivid descriptions of gigs and a good few pages on the recording of You Gotta Move Brown Sugar and Wild Horses at Muscle Shoals but taken together that adds up to about a third of the bulk of this monster I want to like this I want to believe there s to it than the realisation that what had seemed so simple and obvious on the drugs is no longer comprehensible

Dance With The Devil The Rolling Stones Their Times review ☆ 3 Rian Jones it is about much than a writer and a rock band It has been called by Harold Brodkey and Robert Stone among others the best book ever written about the sixties In Booth’s new afterword he finally explains why it took him 15 years to write the book relating an astonishing story of drugs jails and disaste. You don t have to give a shit about the Stones to enjoy this book which is about the Stones the same way that Moby Dick is about a fish
