‘It’s Only Rock n Roll: 30 Years Married to a Rolling Stone’ by Jo Wood [REVIEW]

Being a Rolling Stone fan since they first hit the scene in the early sixties, and Ronnie being my favorite Stone, I had to get the book. I was a bit put off by the reviews of those that read the book, saying they now dislike Ron, are appalled at his actions etc.etc. What reviewers don't realize is the more outlandish the review, the more the book will sell. It's sort of like a song being banned on the radio..everyone goes out and buys the song.
