Good luck with the book, Rolando! That's really great. I wish I can read it one day.
What do you mean by "with the participation of Mick and company"? Did you talk to them or used their available interviews to other publications?

It was a pleasure and an honour to be asked to make a small contribution - although God knows what my article will look like translated into Portuguese!

The work youve put into it is almost enough to make me learn the language. I was under the impression it would be in Portuguese and English though - I guess that wasnt practical in the end.

Cant wait to see it - a real labour of love by the sound of things.

He actually wanted a monetary contribution to help finance the book, but all you did was talk at him instead. Talk about ego! thumbs up smiley

Shite! A few hours of my precious time wasted when I could have sorted it all out in 30 seconds with paypal!

Thank you all for the kind words!
It was and I hope that I had the "talent"to transmit that, a labour of love! The experience itself it worth of a book itself!

Depending now how the reception goes, both critical and financilly, I´m thinking about making a english edition. This book has 256 pages, only in Portuguese, and to put that into a bilingual should be a massive book, and therefore a expensive one.

Gazza! You look and sound great in any language my dear friend!

Riffbuk,that seems to be a wonderful book.
I support your idea about an english edition,not only because of my daughter´s portuguese grandpa...

Please keep us informed.

Thank you.

I hope to see the book in my hands soon. This book was a pregnancy of 3 years.

Riffbuk was very very very very persistent. I saw the book walk step by step and I can say Riffbuk created an impressive and historic book.

I think the book will have the same importance of Os Rolling Stones no Brasil by Nelio Rodrigues,

Thank you carlostones10, shortfatfanny,Kurt, Honestman, SwayStones, Fredluvzstones, sweetcharmedlife, Nicos, Rockman, Rolling Hansie!

And Andre from stonesplanetbrazil.blogspot.com was a real trooper during all the process, giving sugestions and mostly important giving his wisdom and friendship. I have so many people to whom I forever grateful and do not appear in the book like Filipe Simões, Christian Fiot, just to name a few.
For me it was and still is a hell of a ride, that so far already is giving me invitations to works on another book projects related to music. Beside that while I was still working on this I earned the invitations from all the major Portuguese rock bands and went to a hell of parties backstage and in hotels...Rock´n´Roll heaven....
