Had Me A Real Good Time
is the definitive tale of one of Britain's best-loved bands, The Faces
. Formed in 1969 from the remnants of the Small Faces and the Jeff Beck Group, Ron Wood, Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones, along with their raspy-voiced frontman Rod Stewart created a direct, uplifting brand of rock 'n' roll that they made their own.
A welcome antidote to the more serious approach of their peers in the '70s, the devil-may-care and all-for-one attitude and their Cockney camaraderie meant they were as devoted to the mayhem as they were to music.
A product of extensive first-hand interviews and exhaustive research by writer Andy Neill, Had Me A Real Good Time takes the reader from the band's roots in working class childhoods in war-torn London, via each member's sixties Mod roots and onwards through an incredible six-year ride in The Faces and beyond.
This new, updated paperback edition of this acclaimed biography includes an additional chapter covering the sad loss of Ian 'Mac' McLagan, as well as the ongoing rumours surrounding a possible Faces reunion.
The story of a beloved British band, Andy Neill has crafted a brilliant biography that brings Faces fans up to speed with their whole story.
