Produktbeschreibung
As drummer for the Small Faces, Faces and The Who, Kenney Jones and his drum kit have been at the centre of some of the most influential and successful rock bands of all time. When it comes to 1960s swinging London, he was in all of the right places at the right time. Hanging out with the Stones, the Beatles, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Moon, Rod Stewart and Bob Dylan, to name but a few, he was at the epicentre of the most exciting era of popular music history. Part of the inner circle of the world's most-loved bands, his autobiography is as a rich story of how a young cockney Herbert came to be part of the biggest social revolution in living memory. The people, the parties, the love-ins, the fall-outs, the sex, drugs, and a lot of rock n roll.... He was the man who was with Keith Moon the night before his death, came up with the song title 'It's Only Rock n Roll' for the Stones, recruited Rod Stewart into Faces and knew David Bowie when he was a 'folk' singer, referring to him as the fifth member of the band. The Small Faces, who were formed on the streets of the East End and have been credited as the creators of the Mod scene, influenced acts as diverse as Led Zeppelin, the Sex Pistols, the Jam, Blur and Oasis, and their legacy still lives on today. From the Mod revolution, through the psychedelic era and the excesses of the 70s and 80s, Kenney has seen it all, played with everyone, drank with everyone, enjoyed the highs, battled the lows and some how has come through it all in one piece. It's Only Rock n Roll is a breathtaking immersion into music past that leaves the reader feeling as if they've lived it all too.
