ghostrider Posted December 13, 2007 Share Posted December 13, 2007 i think i've related before the story out of "the true adventures of the rolling stones", stanley booth's account of "let it bleed" tour: Stanley Booth was another client of the literary agency I worked at in the 1970s. I went thru his file & found a photocopy of his agreement with the signatures of all 5 original Stones on it, including Brian Jones. If it had been the original I would have swiped it. Booth was years late with his manuscript, surprirse surprise, his original publisher eventually cancelled the deal & he sort of got dropped as a client - "sort of" in that no one could find him for years. The book didn't surface until I had gotten out of the biz. How is Chuck Berry, anyway? ETA: 81 years old, touring, and scheduled to play BB King's on December 30. Chuck plays a regular monthly gig in a high school pal's bar back in our mutual hometown of St. Louis - also Ike's hometown, to wrench this diversion back on topic. We had dinner last month at Highway 61 Revisited, a fun new restaurant/bar in StL that does food from all along the legendary highway. Big mural of musical figures from New Orleans on up covers one wall, including Ike & Tina & Chuck. Cool place, good andouille. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
