Has anyone read Uschi Obermaier's book?

Thanks for the hint about Uschi's book, had never paid very close attention to her, I bumped into a promo video of sorts on YT [www.youtube.com] and extracted that picture, so Keith wasn't alone for that famous picture used for a R&F cover in 1979, odd since she apparently left him in 1975...

Speaking of Jo's book, did she change the title of the book? Is this "Hey Jo" book the same as "It's only Rock and Roll- 30 Years Married to a Rolling Stone"?

peace

It's the same book, also called, Hey Jo: A rock and roll fantasy, in the UK.

First edition 2013 was Hey Jo then 2nd edition 2014 became IORR - 30 years married to a rolling stone

I imagine the new title sold a few more copies

It's a fun read...I read it in a couple of days on the beach last summer

Uschi, the hottest Stones chick by far. Love her name too.

I really enjoyed it too. Jo has a positive, upbeat personality and it shines through in the book. It's a shame it didn't work out with her and Ronnie, it's obvious that she adored him. Still, I'm glad for him that he is in such a happy place in his life now with Sally.

I think the Keith' scenes in Uschis film are good and particularly the Keith portrayal of the German actor. Even Ian S. looks real in that out of car scene. Only Jagger is odd.
Eight miles high was not the german title of the movie. So it seems there was an english version.I have the (German)DVD and like the film. Brings back lots of memories of the 70's.

This thread has made me aware of a movie I'd not heard of- the Uschi movie.. So I watched some of it,
then, the song 'Summer Wine' played at some point..

I'd forgotten how much I used to like this song. Hearing it again I recall the nancy Sinatra version ...
It's a cool song I'm glad to be reminded of. I must have had affinity for those minor- key melodies at an early age.

I have a hard time with Freddie Seaman's book. Firstly, he was convicted for stealing a lot of Lennon's personal property, including Lennon's journals. So I wonder about this book and it is interesting that Yoko was able to squash its publication, so it is no longer available. I haven't read it. I avoided it out of now wanting to support Fred's crimes. But I am interested in it.

I was wary regarding Seaman especially after hearing him on the radio, but I then got my library's copy of his book and it was written more sober-mindedly than the peculiar guy I heard on the radio sounded. The most interesting comment—that I believe—came from John when they were idly talking in the Caribbean. John said about Paul, "I love Paul like a brother, but I don't like him."

Interesting...I'm a big Macca fan (going to catch 2 of his shows in two months) but indeed I can understand why Paul was not very "likable" for Lennon, bossy, scheming (used the breakup to advertize his album, tried to get a bigger percentage of their publishing, negotiated more royalties in the 70s), etc.

I wonder if Mick would now say the same about Keith?
