Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have been together for over forty years. The oldest married couple in rock and roll, their story is the quintessential rock story, made up of the far from mutually exclusive areas of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Chris Salewicz has known Keith and Mick since the early 70s, and traces their journey from the early sixties jazz, blues and r'n'b scene in and around London, through the swinging mid-sixties and on to the Stones' French exile of the early seventies. Along the way Mick's numerous and complicated relationships are untangled, while Keith's descent from the almost innocent, scandalous nature of the Redlands trial of 1967 into a more desolate and befuddled heroin addiction in the seventies is assiduously chronicled. MICK & KEITH is not only a wonderfully vivid portrait of the Stones' extraordinary protagonists, but also a fascinating slice of rock and roll life in the sixties and seventies, the heyday of the band that changed popular music for ever.show more
