A new paperback of the Kenney Jones – Let The Good Times Roll autobiography is now available to order.

The hardback was available around a year ago (and is still available if you want one). In fact, it was also last year that Kenney Jones talked to Modculture about the Ogden’s reissue and this particular book.

As for the content, well, of course, it’s the autobiography of the last surviving Small Face and former member of The Faces and The Who (post-Keith Moon).

As the drummer with the Small Faces, Faces and later The Who, Kenney Jones was the heartbeat that powered three of the most influential rock bands of all time.

Beginning in London’s post-war East End, Kenney’s story takes us through the birth of ‘Mod’, the mind-bending days of the late-1960s and the excesses of the ’70s and ’80s.

In a career spanning six decades, Kenney experienced everything the industry has to offer. He jointly created some of the world’s most-loved records, hung out with the Stones, Beatles, David Bowie, Keith Moon and Rod Stewart, and suffered the loss of close friends to rock ‘n’ roll excess and success.

The legacy created by Kenney and his bandmates has influenced countless acts and in this autobiography, Kenney tells the full story of how a young cockney Herbert played his part in the biggest social transformation in living memory – the people, the parties, the friendships, the fall-outs, the laughter, the sadness, the sex, drugs, and a lot of rock ‘n’ roll, while also opening up about his own deeply personal battles and passions, too.

As I said, the hardback is still available if you want to spend big (see the link above) but a new paperback with an all-new cover is now available to pre-order for a more affordable £8.99 ahead of the 11th July 2019 release date.
