I'm not sure how off-topic the music that formed the background to the original Skinhead look is (do we have a chapter on this planned for the book?) Just to clarify: I am not a huge Stones fan (my dad is, hence my name!) Musically for me it's soul all the way which I prefer to be 'authentic' i.e. American and, preferably, black. Although there are some good 'blue-eyed' soul records, for me white English kids copying black American music are just, forgive the pun, a pale imitation. Remember the story of when the Stones went to the Wheel? I do understand how Jagger, Farlowe and others were viewed at the time, this is just my opinion.
