And they’re great stories. He then goes to the breakup of the Faces and stories of all the bands he later works with. A great person and a humble and great musician. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. And that’s how this story reads. None are particularly deep, but they can get repetitive and boring. Sandy Daltrey rated it it was amazing Apr 08, All told in a humorous easy going way. Ted Butler rated it really liked it Sep 29, One of the saddest things was that he married Kim Moon ex of the infamous Keithand his love for her shines through the later part of the book.
He has great stories and paints a colorful picture of his time with the Small Faces, Faces and the Stones.
Open Preview See a Problem? Written with heart, written with love for the life he lived and his mates. That, I think, really enhanced his story so much more.
Very fast read, very enjoyable! Had set this one aside for awhile. Did finish in January ! CL Bishop rated it liked it Jun 17, Do read it for his voice, his laugh between the sentences.
I read this book immediately after reading Levon Helm’s “This Wheel’s on Fire”, and it amazing how similar the tone and humor are in these two books- especially consider one is from Marvell, Arkansas and the other from Middlesex, England.
Mac takes you on a ride through time, talking about all of the bands and people he has played with over the years! When he died the amount of fans that wrote tributes to him and mentioned that they had met him and how he always had time for them and always answered any e-mails and letters that they sent.
This guy sure knew mclagab to party! Good in parts, but I have to say that I did get bored with qll endless accounts of drinks and drugs. That sense of a good, fun loving guy comes through in this book. No Ego fuel and certainly no boring facts of I did this, I did that, I shagged so and so. Hard to find, I think, but highly recommended! Jul 16, Slim Evans rated it really liked it. Feb 29, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: Lists with This Book. Refresh and try again.

As a big fan of the Small Faces, I was saddened at the death of Mac and felt I should pay homage by reading this book. After reading this book you realise what a loss to the music business the death of Ian McLagan was.
Do read the book. To hhe other readers questions about All the Rageplease sign up. Life seemed to be one big party of drugs, drink and sex, when the Faces were around.
My Book — Ian McLagan
I live in Austin where Mac spent the last part of his life and you’d see him out and about. In the telling, it reveals that no one, through thick and thin, might of had more fun all Ian McLagan.
This was a good look into the life of “Mac”, Ian McLagan, from his early days playing in local bands into being scooped up overnight by the Small Faces and the roller coaster ride it led too in his rock and roll life. Totally inhaled this book in a matter of days. A book full of priceless stories of the faces and small faces.
Not so with this one. Thanks for telling us about the problem. One of the best rock biographies I’ve ever read. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
All the Rage : A Rock ‘n’ Roll Odyssey
I wonder if his estate is worth millions now and if it is getting the royalties due. Jul akl, Rachel rated it it was ok Shelves: Great read, and account of what it was like playing organ with Small Faces in swinging London touring with The Faces,The Stones, and surviving an addiction to freebase cocaine. I also got turned onto the Small Faces mclaagn reading this anytime he would mention an album, like “Ogden’s”I would listen to it as I was reading.
