New Barbarians: Outlaws, Gunslingers, and Guitars, by Rob Chapman
Get the behind-the-music story of the New Barbarians, the short-lived band founded in 1979 by the Rolling Stones lead guitarist Ron Wood!
The group's all-star lineup included Wood's fellow Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, jazz bassist Stanley Clarke, and former Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan. The band formed in 1979, toured, and played its final concert in 1980 - gone, but not forgotten. Now fans can learn the untold story of this legendary band, recounted through never-before-seen photography and in-depth interviews. The New Barbarians offers an intimate look at the brief history of a band that built a cult following in record time.
This book is a feast for Stones fans and an essential contribution to rock and roll history. Includes a CD with 10 previously unreleased tracks from the band's 1979 U.S. tour.
"If you are a Stones or Faces fan — hell, any kind of rock ‘n’ roll fan — you should embrace the glorious mess that was the New Barbarians. The book is a breezy, chronological read of a legendary story whose telling is long overdue. Chapman’s book is chock full of live and backstage photographs, memorabilia and stories for the ages..." - All Music Books.
