Butterfly On A Wheel ZANI The Imprisonment of Richards & Jagger

Written by Simon Wells
/mick jagger keith richards marianne faithfull simon wells the rolling stones matteo sedazzari zani 3.

This is an extract from Simon Wells’ new book on the historic arrest and imprisonment of Keith Richards and Mick Jagger in 1967. “Butterfly On A Wheel” charts the extraordinary timeline of events that ultimately led to two of the Rolling Stones finding themselves behind bars. This act would spark a chain of events that would lead to public outrage, questions in the House of Commons, and the editor of The Times newspaper likening Mick Jagger to a ‘butterfly on a wheel’.

Amy Winehouse – Her School Days Remembered (RIP)

Written by Katy Georgiou
/amy winehouse katy georgiou zani 1

It was 1998, lunchtime, Year 11, The Mount School, Mill Hill. I was in the school toilets. There was no-one else in there. I went into the cubicle and shut the door behind me. A few moments later, I heard the toilet doors swing open. I heard footsteps, and then silence. I don’t think the girl who walked in had realized there was anybody else in there, because the next thing I knew she broke out into song, at the top of her lungs. I must admit, it was a bit surreal.

When Blondie performed "Die Young Stay Pretty" on "Eat To The Beat", I guess they didn't imagine that four decades later they would still be releasing albums capable of making you stop in your tracks.
