2.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining but hard to believe.
When you write about one of the greatest rock bands ever, you have the potential to make alot of money if you make the story interesting enough. I think that's what Sanchez was doing here; mixing just enough lies with the truth to come up with great copy. Unfortunately, it's hard to tell the fluff from the real stuff which is sad, because I'll bet the actual true...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Up & Down W/Rolling Stones PB (Taschenbuch)
I used to own the out-of-print paperback edition of this book. I foolishly gave it away.
Sanchez begins with his life as a young, aspiring, underworld figure, emulating an older, already established relative. He worked in a casino, and also began to take up photography. (By his own account, Sanchez was commissioned to photograph the cover of the first Moody Blues album.) An acquaintance, London art dealer Robert Fraser, was deeply in debt to another casino run by an underworld boss, and dramatically confided his problem to Sanchez. Sanchez nervily approached the casino boss, to keep Fraser out of harm's way. Then -- aware that his own casino subtly rigged gaming against its customers -- Sanchez arranged for Fraser to win money from Sanchez's gaming table needed to pay off the debt. Fraser was profoundly grateful and so introduced "Spanish Tony" to his new, up-and-coming, hip young friends, the Rolling Stones.
Spanish Tony's common bond with the Stones was his access to, and penchant for, hard drugs. Ultimately, he would become a heroin addict.
This book mostly concentrates on Sanchez' close access to Jagger, Richards, and Jones, as well as Stones' ex'es Anita Pallenberg, Marianne Faithfull, and Bianca, between the years 1966-73, which was the peak of the Stones' artistic success. Watts, Wyman, and Mick Taylor are hardly discussed, and receive less than 2 pages each.
Sanchez acknowledges the shallowness of his friendship with and access to the Stones as being based on his connections and ability to discreetly obtain large quantities of drugs in both England and the south of France. He simultaneously served as Keith Richards' (who spent the most on drugs) connection to and insulation from the underworld. Ultimately, Sanchez severed his relationship with the Stones and went into rehab. There can be no question of Sanchez' close relationship with three of the Stones, if the exclusive candid photos in his book are any indication.
Anyone who wasn't present for the events which shaped the book can't know for sure, but, as a aficionado of insider celebrity bios, this book is presented with sufficient insight and clarity to convince that it is principally a true story.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Up & Down W/Rolling Stones PB (Taschenbuch)
I remember reading this book when it was first published; I was a pre-teen, and believe me, I learned a lot! Being a huge Stones fan, I regarded it as my bible (my best friend and I used to act out scenes). I still beleive this book to be for the most part true, although perhaps taken out of context (oh, just a little)! It's definitely juicy, and really throws you into the late sixties/early seventies scene. I'd recommend it, but take some of it with a grain of salt!

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Just around midnight", 18. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Up & Down W/Rolling Stones PB (Taschenbuch)
The tale of "Spanish Tony's" days of wine & roses with the Stones is astounding folk-lore. Unlike other books,this one gets into the grit & hardly comes up for air. I've read Keith Richards saying this book is pretty acurate,a real insiders bed-time story. No-one else but Tony can really account for the actions of Keith & Anita during the "exile" period in France. Here,their every event is catalogued. Very juicy reading.

Unfortunately, it's hard to tell the fluff from the real stuff which is sad, because I'll bet the actual true account of the Stones would be even better! As they say, "Truth is stranger than fiction."

4.0 von 5 Sternen Off stage antics of the Rolling Stones, 8. Juni 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Up & Down W/Rolling Stones PB (Taschenbuch)
This book, written by Tony(I score drugs for the rolling stones) Sanchez gives his perception of the Stones. Although it is an entertaining book, it doesn't give the real behind the scenes look at the stones as does the book Stone Alone written by Bill Wyman. It has a few funny stories and clever comments, but in no way compares with the book written by Bill, or the Autobiography written by Keith and Victor Bockris.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must For Stones Fans , But How Accurate is Spanish Tony?, 18. Januar 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Up & Down W/Rolling Stones PB (Taschenbuch)
Up & Down is one of those "Can't Put It Down" type of books. Tony Sanchez has compiled a reading that is a must for all Stones fans. The real question is towards the legitamacy of the actual stories that have be written in Tonys' words. I've read other Stones materials where Wyman and "KEEF" have laughed at the content of UP & Down due to the BS factor. Regardless , for the educated Stones reader , several of the actual stories / happenings seem to have been repeated in other publications. I found great enjoyment in UP & Down regardless if some of the actual occassions were somewhat stretched. The Ups & Downs that keith has gone thru has been absolutely hilarious, actually he is the kind of person who would be fun to hang out with.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Keith,Keith,Keith, 12. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Up & Down W/Rolling Stones PB (Taschenbuch)
This is a book for someone who wants to step out of the '90's, and into the decadant drug-soaed early '70's. Who better to do that with than Mr. Keith Richard. This book takes you on a journey. A journey through Stonesland when they were at there peak. I've read 5 mllion Stones books, and this rates right up there with Booth & Greenfield's books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intro to Rolling Stones 101, 9. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Up & Down W/Rolling Stones PB (Taschenbuch)
Though this lurid account of the lives of the Rolling Stones remains the most readable of any Stones book that I have encountered, I think it is important to compare this "non-fiction" tale with Bill Wyman's "Stone Alone." Tony Sanchez, according to Wyman, should not be believed. Who really knew Brian, Mick, and Keith? You decide.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Up & Down W/Rolling Stones PB (Taschenbuch)
Keith Richards said that a lot of the stories in this book start out true, but then change to "Grimm's Ferry Tales" where the stories become made-up. And he said, "I know why Tony changed the stories...because people would have ended up in jail...including himself!" When Keith next saw Sanchez after this book was out, he took out a gun, and dragged the barrel across Sanchez's face, pretending to "show" the gun to Sanchez, but also to intimidate him. Sanchez left very nervous. BUT, Keith has been known to fabricate stories of his own life (like saying his mother took him for a walk in his pram during WW II, and when they returned to their house, it was bombed flat by the Germans. ACTUALLY, a piece of brick from a bombing flew through Keith's window, and landed on his bed. The house itself wasn't harmed.) So, when you are faced with two fabricators, who to believe? I don't know myself. I do know that I've read passages from UP AND DOWN WITH THE ROLLING STONES, countless times, and whether the stories are true or not, they do make for very gripping reading for huge Stones fans like myself.
