    Story

    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 with them listening to blues, talking about music, ingesting drugs, and consorting with groupies. His 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.

    Poet says: "Poetic, Hip, Great Time Machine of a book!"

    What made the experience of listening to The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones the most enjoyable?

    The author painted wonderful pictures of the times!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I didn't want it to end! I especially appreciated the way the author really made Brian Jones an active part of the book, which is so important.


    What aspect of Adrian Mulraney’s performance would you have changed?

    This particular narrator was not a good choice for the material. An Englishman reading a book written from the perspective of a man from Waycross, GA isn't a good fit, unless he's imitating Mick Jagger's cockney accent. Unfortunate choice for such a cool book with great moments and characters that required a little more southern flavor at times.
