So, with Keith saying the actual facts are true, why slag the book? Usual signs of a well read book but good overall condition. Also, I just thought I'd mention that if you're on the fence about doing heroin, I'd recommend holding off until you've read this book and then re-evaluating. Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text.
From United Kingdom to U. Good luck trying to find this book because it may be out of print. Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact.

Let's put it like this: I couldn't plow through it all because my eyes were watering from laughter. They were young guys having fun. Here the Stones as never seen before, cavorting around the world, smashing Bentleys, working black magic, getting raided, having children, snorting coke, and mainlining heroin. Sanchez was a gopher, so the whole book needs to be put into that framework.

I'm just putting it up here for, like, total disclosure.
