Description

A compelling account of the Stones trashing America during 1972... Greenfield was allowed the kind of access journalists can only dream of today' The Times The Stones' 1972 tour of the States was perhaps their best and certainly most notorious ever. Their previous visit in 1969 had ended in the nightmare of Altamont; now, three years later, they had just recorded their two finest albums, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street, and were musically in their prime if also personally at their most dissolute and debauched. Robert Greenfield, one of America's finest writers, went along for the ride and came back with a riveting account of high living, excess and rock roll fury, from the Playboy Mansion to the jail cells of Rhode Island. This was an extended tour Party, capital P, to which all America's hip, rich and glitzy were invited, from Truman Capote to Stevie Wonder, Annie Liebowitz to Hugh Hefner. The result has been acclaimed as one of the all-time classic music books. Published for some years by Helter Skelter under the title A Journey Through America with the Rolling Stones, it is now reissued by Aurum under its original title with a new introduction by the author. Robert Greenfield is also the author of Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell with the Rolling Stones and biographies of Timothy Leary and Jerry Garcia. He lives in California.
