Not so with this one. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I met Mac a few times, shared a pint of Guinness with him, and he rahe one of those friendly, funny, down-to-earth people you feel like you’ve known all your life, when you just met.

Ian McLagan: All The Rage – book review

A great person and a humble and great musician. It’s lively and interesting throughout. All the Rage isn’t much more than a series of anecdotes, but McLagan vividly captures what it was like to be in a pop band in Sixties England and in a rock band in the Seventies, with the generous sense of humor and acceptance of human weakness that one would expect from a member of the Small Faces and Faces.

Good luck finding it!

Mc,agan so lucky to take my 9-year-old to see him Don’t read these pages just for the stories, the people he’s known.

Open Preview See a Problem? He pulls no punches, spares no one and really knows how to tell a tale.


I met Mac and hung out with him a couple of times alp the teens and I wish I had read this before I’d met him. Don’t read these pages just for the stories, the people he’s known.

Had set this one aside for awhile. Good in parts, but I have to say that I did get bored with the endless accounts of drinks and drugs. Literally laugh out loud funny moments, and great stories behind the Faces, Stones, etc.

Fun read, lots of inside stuff about some of rock’s biggest names. I literally finished the book and decided I wanted to be a keyboard player for the Faces when I grow up.

My Book — Ian McLagan

No Ego fuel and certainly no boring facts of I did this, I did that, I shagged so and so. Honestly, who wants to hear from the piano player who can’t sing all that well? Written with heart, written with love for the life he lived and his mates.
