The Faces were vital contributors to rock in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and McLagan, the Face's keyboardist, tells their story and his own convivially. Before admitting Rod Stewart and guitarist Ron Wood and willy-nilly becoming the singer's backup band, the Faces had recorded, as the Small Faces, the protopsychedelic hit "Itchycoo Park," with Steve Marriott out front. And McLagan not only collaborated with Marriott, Stewart, and future Rolling Stone Wood

Small Faces, Faces, Bonnie Raitt, The Rolling Stones (he played on one of my favourite Stones' songs "Miss You"), The New Barbarians, Bob Dylan and other artists and bands along the way. For a guy that I had never heard of before coming across this book, I was so taken in by his story. This was a good look into the life of "Mac", Ian McLagan, from his early days playing in local bands into being scooped up overnight by the Small Faces and the roller coaster ride it led too in his rock and roll life.

A must read if you were and still are a fan of the Small Faces. Mac's insight on touring with Dylan in 84 is worth the price of the book alone. Recommend It Stats Recent Status Updates.

My high life with the Small Faces, the Faces, the Rolling Stones and many more. It made me get out their music and play it loud again.

McLagan – a 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee – suffered a stroke at his home on Tuesday evening and died in the hospital today.

I read alot of these musician bios / memoirs, and this is in the top 5 for sure (probably top 3 with Keith Richards and Mike Doughty). I can't believe I didn't know McLagan had written a memoir until this year. This is just a great read -- rolls along, tells fantastic stories (with a perhaps hard-to-believe level of recall, especially given the consumption standards), stays pretty objective about people (e.g., Rod Stewart). General tone is looking back on an eventful life, fondly -- it really feels like you're in a pub somewhere and the guy next to you has somehow turned out to be one of the great keyboard players of the 1960s and beyond, and he's regaling you with his favorite group of anecdotes. Highly recommended.

Heard about this book after Mac's passing a couple years back. Written with heart, written with love for the life he lived and his mates.
Tells not all, but enough to confirm the long held suspicion that The Faces had as much fun as anyone in rock and roll.
In the telling, it reveals that no one, through thick and thin, might of had more fun than Ian McLagan.
Great rock and roll reading-Enjoy!

I have read a lot of books about rock music and this is one of the best yet. It is a rare musician who writes a memoir without help or the use of a ghostwriter, but such is the case here. Mr. McLagan, in addition to being one of rock's best keyboard players, also knew his way around the written word. His stories flow with a natural ease and they never fail to entertain the reader. I found his tale of rags-to-never-quite-riches to be a fascinating and compelling read. He had such an unassuming way about himself, that despite all of his success, he never took anything for granted. Sadly Ian passed away in 2014, but he lives on through his music and this great book. R.I.P., indeed.

I feel a bit guilty that it took me so long to read this book. Sadly, it was the news of his death that finally got me started. A terrific read for anyone who has the slightest interest in learning about some of the greatest music ever recorded. The stories are both hilarious and sad, and his obvious love for Kim and the people he worked with is inspiring. So well written and so entertaining. It's a rare thing for me to do this, but having finished reading this just ten minutes ago, I'm about to start it again - it's that good.

This is possibly THE best account of the music world from the '60s on - and the state of the music business, as well. Nothing feels left out or whitewashed in the least. Ian McLagan has told the entire story of the Small Faces, the Faces, lots of juicy tidbits about Rod Stewart, all his fellow band members, the Stones, etc etc. And all done in great style - one of the best first-person narratives I've ever read from a musician! I loved every minute of the read.

Granted it jumps in places but it's well told and Ian is a natural born story teller. To be at the centre of two great bands and then right alongside many others gave him a wonderful position to recount the life and times of rock and roll on tour and at home. It's crammed with anecdotes and insight and tells his story warts and all and paints a picture of his peers and contemporaries that is vivid and authentic as only an insider can.

Have to admit: I've been a fan of Mac's work ever since the Small Faces released Shalalalalee. Nevertheless, fan of the music does not imply fan of his writing. So I started the book with caution, like I start every 'music' book: is it a brilliant trip that whisks me away on the journey, or is it a cheap ripoff of the fans who cannot stay away?

Rest assured: this book is a) very well written, very entertaining, very funny, and b) never spirals down (like so many other similar works) into Oh they did this to me, I never got recognized for that, etc.

Anyone who knows Mac will confirm: reading this book is like listening to the man talk: one anecdote pours into the other during a very human and often hilarious conversation, always delivered with that unmistakenly British great sense of humor.

Cheers Mac, you've given me many hours of reading pleasure, on top of what I already owe you for playing on much of the soundtrack of my life.

Especially recommended for fellow musicians!
I rarely bother reviewing products here, but I enjoyed this book so much I feel compelled to endorse it. I enjoyed it while I read it, and have found myself enjoying it even more as a reference to the golden age of true rock...Lovely book,, sounds like a good friend with an amazing memory. Highly recommended.
