'The Small Faces were the most creative, The Faces were the most fun, The Who were the most exciting. These were electrifying days in music. We were all untried, untested. What was stopping us? Nothing.' As drummer with the Small Faces, Faces and later The Who, Kenney Jones' unique sense of rhythm was the heartbeat that powered three of the most influential rock bands of all time. Beginning in London's post-war East End, Kenney's autobiography takes us through the birth of the Mod revolution, the mind-bending days of the late 1960s, and the raucous excesses of the 70s and 80s. In a career spanning six decades, Kenney was at the epicentre of many of the most exciting moments in music history, and has jointly created some of the world's most-loved records. He has hung out with the Stones, the Beatles, David Bowie, Keith Moon and Rod Stewart, and suffered the loss of close friends to rock 'n' roll excess and success. This is a vivid and breath-taking immersion into the story of this young Cockney Herbert, playing pranks, with close ties to the Krays, the people, the parties, friendships, fall-outs, laughter, sadness, sex, drugs and lots of rock 'n' roll. He also opens up about his deeply personal passions and battles and his unplanned ascent from Commercial Road to hobnobbing with Prince Charles in one's very own polo clubhouse via two bouts of cancer and a near-fatal car crash. Bone-dry, nod's-as-good-as-a-wink style, Kenney's critically acclaimed album The Law cemented his reputation as a talented musician. 360pp in large softback, many colour photos.
