Last chance to win a New Barbarians book

Outlaws, Gunslingers, and Guitars' By Rob Chapman

posted by Mike Walton

Here is your last chance to win a signed copy of the of the lavish new hardcover book 'New Barbarians: Outlaws, Gunslingers, and Guitars' by Rob Chapman

The book covers in depth a period in not only Rolling Stones but also Faces history that was previously largely overlooked. With both Ronnie Wood and Ian McLagan involved in the band, we are sure this will be a must have addition to any Faces collection.
This lavish 200 page book tells the true story of the New Barbarians, the all-star band founded by Ronnie in 1979.

In 1979, Rolling Stones lead guitarist Ron Wood founded the New Barbarians. The group's all-star lineup included Wood's fellow Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, jazz bassist Stanley Clarke, former Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan, Stones confederate and saxophonist Bobby Keys, and drummer Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste from the Meters. 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.
The band became known for hard-edged music, but it also gained notoriety for events such as the infamous riot at the New Barbarians' first concert in Milwaukee--a riot that broke out when the "special guests" did not appear during the show. This and more wild, rollicking stories are included in The New Barbarians, which features behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the band members as well as dirt about its famous tour, plus background on the widespread influence of its music.

Featuring never-before-published photography of the band by Bruce Silberman (who accompanied the New Barbarians on their US tour in 1979), this book is a feast for Faces/Stones fans and an essential contribution to rock and roll history.
