Présentation de l'éditeur

This insider’s account of the lives of Brian Jones, Keith Richard, and Mick Jagger in the sixties and seventies has become legendary in the years since its first publication in 1979. Tony Sanchez worked for Keith Richard for eight years – buying drugs, running errands, and orchestrating cheap thrills – and he records unforgettable accounts of the Stones’ perilous misadventures: racing cars along the Cote d’Azur; murder at Altamont; nostalgic nights with the Beatles at the Stones-owned nightclub Vesuvio; frantic flights to Switzerland for blood changes; and the steady stream of women, including Anita Pallenberg, Marianne Faithfull, and Bianca Jagger. Here the Stones as never seen before, cavorting around the world, smashing Bentleys, working black magic, getting raided, having children, snorting coke, and mainlining heroin. Sanchez tells the whole truth, sparing not even himself in the process. With hard-hitting prose and candid photographs, he creates an invaluable primary source for anyone interested in the world’s most famous rock and roll band.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Rolling Stones equivalent of Albert Speer's memoirs 3 octobre 2005
Par J. V. Hennburg - Publié sur Amazon.com
KEITH HIMSELF HAS SAID THAT EVERYTHING TONY SANCHEZ SAYS IN THIS BOOK IS TRUE. If you want to know what it may have been like to really be on the inside, to really know the Stones and what they did on a day-to-day basis, get this book. Sanchez was a crook, he admits it. He was a junkie, he broke all sorts of laws working for Keith. But that's what it was (apparently) like! For Keith to feed his drug habit he would have needed somebody like Sanchez. There are some parts of this book that aren't exactly "clean reading," but the truth is the truth. This book is a classic of a unique kind: It isn't biased by the desire to be hip or appealing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 it may be flawed, but it's good 8 avril 2005

I read this book about 25 years ago as a teenager and couldn't put it down. It provided a very unflattering portrait of Jagger and Richard, which resonated up until, and including, the present. Curious, I read it again and found just as absorbing. Perhaps some things are slightly embellished, but it does have an air of believability to it. Some of these anecdotes are so bizarre, it seems highly unlikely that they were just plucked from someone's imagination. In a way, it all makes perfect sense. The author worked for Keith Richards for many years, and as the latter grew richer and more famous, he also became more isolated from reality. Therefore, it's hardly a stretch to find out that he basically did whatever he wanted, even if it meant harming others. The tone of the book is even-tempered, not pompous or egotistical in the least. Having said all of this, there's no denying Jagger and Richards's enormous talent, but there's never been a correlation between artistic gifts and being a good person. Even if only half of the book is true, it's a pretty poor indictment of their characters. I should mention too that the book is hilarious at times and also quite entertaining.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An engaging, believable read 31 mai 2007
Par S. Winterich - Publié sur Amazon.com
I used to own the out-of-print paperback edition of this book. I foolishly gave it away.

Sanchez begins with his life as a young, aspiring underworld figure, emulating an older, already established relative. He worked in a casino, and also began to take up photography. (Sanchez writes that he photographed the first Moody Blues album cover.) An acquaintance, London art dealer Robert Fraser, was deeply in debt to another casino run by an underworld boss, and dramatically confided his problem to Sanchez. Sanchez nervily approached the creditor casino boss, to keep Fraser out of harm's way. Then--aware that the competing casino where he worked subtly rigged gaming against its own customers--Sanchez arranged for Fraser to win the money needed to pay off the debt. Fraser was grateful and so introduced "Spanish Tony" to his new, up-and-coming, hip young friends, the Rolling Stones.

Spanish Tony's common bond with Jones and Richards was his access to, and penchant for, hard drugs and he became a heroin addict.

This book mostly concentrates on Sanchez' close access to Jagger, Richards, and Jones, as well as Stones' exes Anita Pallenberg, Marianne Faithfull, and Bianca, between the years 1966-73, which was the peak of the Stones' artistic success. Watts, Wyman, and Mick Taylor are hardly discussed, and they get just a few pages of text.

Sanchez acknowledges the shallowness of his friendship with and access to the Stones as being based on his connections and ability to discreetly obtain large quantities of drugs in England and the south of France. He was Keith Richards' (who spent the most on drugs) liaison to the underworld. Sanchez severed his relationship with the Stones and went into rehab. There can be no question of Sanchez' close relationship with three of the Stones, from the unique candid photos he publishes here.

Anyone who wasn't present for the events which shaped the book can't know for sure, but to a fan of insider celebrity bios, this book is presented with sufficient insight and clarity to convince that it is principally a true story.

First of all, this book, even if stretched, is great reading! Second, the guy Brent who gave the book one star needs to get his facts straight. In the movie "Gimme Shelter", the guy "scowling so prettily when one of the Maysles sticks a light meter in his face" while in the hotel room with the Mick and Keith listening to "Brown Sugar" is not Tony Sanchez. It's another author by the the name of Stanley Booth who wrote the book "The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones" while covering the Stones' '69 tour. Try reading it.

Keith Richards said that a lot of the stories in this book start out true, but then change to "Grimm's Ferry Tales" where the stories become made-up. And he said, "I know why Tony changed the stories...because people would have ended up in jail...including himself!" When Keith next saw Sanchez after this book was out, he took out a gun, and dragged the barrel across Sanchez's face, pretending to "show" the gun to Sanchez, but also to intimidate him. Sanchez left very nervous. BUT, Keith has been known to fabricate stories of his own life (like saying his mother took him for a walk in his pram during WW II, and when they returned to their house, it was bombed flat by the Germans. ACTUALLY, a piece of brick from a bombing flew through Keith's window, and landed on his bed. The house itself wasn't harmed.) So, when you are faced with two fabricators, who to believe? I don't know myself. I do know that I've read passages from UP AND DOWN WITH THE ROLLING STONES, countless times, and whether the stories are true or not, they do make for very gripping reading for huge Stones fans like myself.
