Stoned : A Memoir of London in the 1960s by Andrew Loog Oldham, Simon Dudfield

A dazzling memoir from the legendary manager of the Rolling Stones, who not only lived the 1960s, but helped create them<P>Ultra-hip, brash, schooled in style by Mary Quant and tutored by Brian Epstein, Andrew Loog Oldham was a hustler of genius, addicted to scandal, notoriety, and innovation. Epstein hired him to break the Beatles, but it was his visionary work at age 19 with the Rolling Stones that turned Oldham into a legend. They were all bad boys when I found them, he recalls. I just brought out the worst in them. A svengali figure to some, a calculating opportunist to others, he quickly turned himself into one of the most brilliant impresarios of the decade. Told in his own words and in those of his contemporaries -- captured in seventy original conversations -- Stoned is a dazzling evocation of London in the 1960s. Mary Quant, Pete Townshend, Vidal Sassoon, Nik Cohn, and Marianne Faithful are among the colorful cast reassembled for this long awaited self-portrait of one of the eras most influential and elusive figures.
