BOOK S T ORE Out of Our Heads: The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Me By Ronnie Schneider (hardcover) $69.00 (paperback) $34.99 (basic paperback) $19.69 Fresh out of accounting school in 1965, Ronnie Schneider was hired by his uncle, the now legendary/infamous Allen Klein, to tour manage what would become the most dangerous band of the era, the Rolling Stones. In a few short years, Schneider would also be working for Klein clients the Beatles, and his recollections of both bands are often pure gold. Schneider’s memoir gives a nuts and bolts depiction of what the primitive pop music biz was like before it became an industry. He details many of his transactions with actual hand-written tallysheets from the time. The author’s recounting of the infamous 1969 Altamont concert debacle, where a concert-goer was stabbed to death, is especially vivid. From its mundane details of life on the road to its magnificent anecdotes of life-threatening altercations, Out of Our Heads is a must-read for devoted Stones fans.

Born in Cuba at the time of Castro’s communist regime, Miret fled to the U.S. where he would live in poverty and violence, extreme challenges that shaped the grit that became essential in his survival. Through countless adversities, he found himself pioneering the new musical genre alongside other like-minded misfits.
