Legendary among fans since its 1979 release, originally titled I Was Keith Richards' Drug Dealer, this is the absolutely over-the-top, outrageous account of the Stones at their debauched peak Tony Sanchez worked for Keith Richards for eight years buying drugs, running errands, and orchestrating cheap thrills. In this notorious chronicle of that time, he records unforgettable accounts of the Stones' perilous misadventures racing cars along the Cote d'Azur, murder at Altamont, nights with the Beatles at the Stones-owned nightclub Vesuvio, frantic flights to Switzerland for blood changes, and the steady stream of women, including Anita Pallenberg, Marianne Faithfull, and Bianca Jagger. Here are the Stones at their debauched peak cavorting around the world, smashing Bentleys, working black magic, getting raided, snorting coke, and mainlining heroin. Sanchez spares not even himself in these accounts, told with hard-hitting prose and featuring candid photographs.
