Praise for You Had To Be There : The Rolling Stones Live 1962 – 1969

“The book is excellent it is pieced together well, and takes me right back. Follow the story of the greatest Rock and band in the world, from the early Rhythm and blues days, the Brian Jones era. Great work done by the author in gathering all the information together, I would recommend this book to anyone who has had interest in the Rolling Stones, the book made me laugh and it made me cry.”


“This book is a fabulous reminder of those heady days of the early 60s and yes, you really had to be there as I was when I first saw the Stones at Blackpool in 1964. Now where is my Tardis?!”


“It’s well made, well edited, and a real pleasure to read. What I didn’t expect to come away with was a heavy sense of loss, even sadness, for a time long gone. You Had to Be There does more than capture the pleasure of seeing the Stones in the early years, it captures an age of innocence when real musicians played in real theatres.”


“Excellent book very well constructed showing the development of The Stones during a golden age . I was lucky to see them perform in 1965 and the memories live on but this book helps to remind me of the things I had forgotten.”


“Reading the experiences from the ’60s which to an extent mirrored mine, memory lane re-visited outstanding. The black & white “ the way we where” photographs amazing, Richard what a truly wonderful well researched and presented book. Thank you for allowing my memories of the Stones to be published… mind you I had a bit of explaining to do to my wife who questioned “who was that girl”.”


“What a brilliant job you have done creating this book, what a trip down memory lane it is to read the stories of other people too. In the photo of the stones interview at Huddersfield ABC, Mick is wearing THE corduroy jacket !!”
