Summary

'Which is the best band I've been in? The Small Faces were the most creative, The Faces were the most fun, The Who were the most exciting. These were electrifying days in music. We were all untried, untested. What was stopping us? Nothing.'  

As drummer with The Small Faces, Faces and later The Who, Kenney Jones' unique sense of rhythm was the heartbeat that powered three of the most influential rock bands of all time.   

Beginning in London's postwar East End, Kenney's story takes us through the birth of the Mod revolution, the mind-bending days of the late 1960s and the raucous excesses of the '70s and '80s. In a career spanning six decades, Kenney was at the epicentre of many of the most exciting moments in music history and has experienced everything the industry has to offer. He jointly created some of the world's most loved records, hung out with the Stones, the Beatles, David Bowie, Keith Moon and Rod Stewart, and suffered the loss of close friends to rock 'n' roll excess and success.   

The legacy created by Kenney and his bandmates has influenced acts as diverse as Led Zeppelin, the Sex Pistols and Oasis. Now, for the very first time, Kenney tells the full story of how a young Cockney Herbert played his part in the biggest social transformation in living memory - the people, the parties, the friendships, the fallouts, the laughter, the sadness, the sex, drugs, and a lot of rock 'n' roll, while also opening up about his own deeply personal battles and passions, too. This is a vivid and breathtaking immersion into the most exciting era of music history and beyond.

Wow, what a fantastic life

Thank you Kenny Jones for getting your life story ‘out there’. This is a fun and tender account starting with Kenny’s beginning with his East End family through his years with The Small Faces and The Who and beyond. I found the narrator to be excellent.

Great story of a great life.

Very well written and read takes you right back in time to the sixties and seventies. Live with those really involved the pain frustration and excitement of dealing with dodgy business deals and fame whilst having the time of your lives.

Superb

Great to get the inside stories of the Small Faces, The Faces and The Who. From a real fan of all three.
Thankyou Kenney.
