Feb 29, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: Do read the book. Tells not all, but enough to confirm the long held suspicion that The Faces had as much fun as anyone in rock and roll. I wasn’t aware that this book existed until Mac passed away last year. A great person and a humble and great musician. Hard to find, I think, but highly recommended!

My Book — Ian McLagan
