'50 Licks' On Mixed Bag

by Don McGee
Rod Wood, Pete Fornatale, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger

Pete Fornatale's son, Peter Thomas, his wife Susan, and their daughter Perrin Tamar Fornatale, visited WFUV this week. Peter Thomas and I talked about his dad's last book project, "50 Licks: Myths and Stories from Half a Century of the Rolling Stones." And, Tamar made her radio debut on her grandfather's program. I guess all of life is a circle.

Hope you enjoy the interview. I know you'll enjoy the book.
