2stonedby Andrew Loog Oldham
Synopses & Reviews
The last word on the Rolling Stones by the man who discovered and managed them.
In his first book, Stoned, Andrew Loog Oldham recorded his early years and the meeting with the Stones in 1963 that changed all their fates. 2Stoned is the story of what followed in the most exciting period of the bands history — 1964 — 1967, by which time the Stones had achieved worldwide celebrity, been arrested in a notorious drugs raid and split with Oldham, the manager who made them. This book is the remarkable record of those years — the untold story of the Rolling Stones from the man who steered them to fame.
An utter original, a svengali figure and a hustler of genius, Oldham had, by the age of twenty-one, made the Stones famous, made himself a million — and spent it — and revolutionized the music business. Revered and reviled in equal measure, he had a flair for style, outrage, hedonism and success. While he was managing the multiple recording sessions and the touring for the groups first golden run of seminal tracks, he was also controlling the permanent storm of publicity around the band.
In this antidotal portrait of the “Swinging Sixties,” the Stones in America and the “Summer of Love,” there is also an unflinching record of the drug-soaked years after his break-up with the Stones. Told both in his own words and those of his contemporaries, 2Stoned is a unique account of the charmed period when Andrew Loog Oldham and the Rolling Stones were invincible.
