Making the Stones’ New Album

Steve Turner, Rolling Stone, 5 December 1974

Twenty-one albums on, Keith Richard is back in Richmond, the Thameside London suburb where the Rolling Stones first played the local clubs 12 years ago. This time he’s staying at Ronnie Wood’s place, pouring out the Jack Daniel’s, chatting with visitor Jimmy Page, toying with the dagger he carries in a leather sheath and playing for his guests the final mix of the Stones’ new LP, It’s Only Rock and Roll.
