A transplanted Englishman, Ian "Mac" McLagan is now a resident of Austin, Texas. Dave Marsh, author of many books about popular music, is one of America's most respected rock critics. He lives in Norwalk, Connecticut.From Booklist:
The Faces were vital contributors to rock in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and McLagan, the Face's keyboardist, tells their story and his own convivially. Before admitting Rod Stewart and guitarist Ron Wood and willy-nilly becoming the singer's backup band, the Faces had recorded, as the Small Faces, the protopsychedelic hit "Itchycoo Park," with Steve Marriott out front. McLagan's early proximity to the stars makes him a crucial source of inside dope on them. And McLagan not only collaborated with Marriott, Stewart, and future Rolling Stone Wood. He hooked up with Who drummer Keith Moon's ex-wife and experienced sadly characteristic harassment from Moon the Loon. Doin' toot with Ike Turner, trying to get Stewart to record the occasional Faces song in the midst of his burgeoning megastardom, having Pete Townshend intervene when Moon hired goons to get him--McLagan tells all and then some. A fine addition to our knowledge of the relationships within '60s rock and their incidental but vital salacious aspects and a must-read for aging rockers. Mike Tribby
