Call me crazy: I've been called worse. In 1974, I spent one entire weekend attending six, count 'em six, screenings of the concert-film LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE ROLLING STONES. For that flock of you who may not remember, or even know, that is the film which begins with something like a quarter-hour of near-total darkness. What I am talking-about, brothers and sisters, is dedication. Dedication perhaps worthy of a better cause, but dedication nonetheless. And dedication to what? Well, around that time, my wife (as she then was) kept me spell-bound by reading this book out-loud non-stop, a feat nearly equal to my epic weekend of Stones-watching. She and I were swept up in this account which, consisteny of-course with the inevitable limits of pop-culture journalism, captured in prose the magic we found on record and film. A lot has happened to all of us since then, but I am confident that if I re-read this book now, with the grave not far distant, I would still discern the ring of truth. And oh yes, the title is a pun -- need I really explain it? God forbid. ( )
