Autobiography of the guitarist, songwriter, singer, and founding member of the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards. With the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards lived the original rock and roll life. He tells his story of life in the crossfire hurricane; his listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records, learning guitar and forming a band with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, the Rolling Stones' first fame and the notorious drug busts that led to his enduring image as outlaw folk hero, creating immortal riffs like the ones in "Jumping Jack Flash" and "Honky Tonk Women." He discusses falling in love with Anita Pallenberg and the death of Brian Jones, his tax exile in France, wildfire tours of the U.S., isolation and addiction, as well as falling in love with Patti Hansen, and his bitter estrangement from Jagger and subsequent reconciliation. He talks about his marriage, family, solo albums and Xpensive Winos; the road that goes on forever.« Less

SummaryAdd a Summary
Biography of the life of Keith Richards and his membership in the Rolling Stones.
A gift from Raymond. Read it over a number of weeks. Skipped over the technical guitar/music parts. Well written - wonder what share of the writing done by Keef and what part by James Fox. But interesting perspective on life with the Rolling Stones. 8/10
NoticesAdd a Notice
Coarse Language: A few swears. Uses a lot of English terms which, may very well be swears.
Sexual Content: Nothing in great detail, but there are references to sex.
Other: MANY drug references. This is the main reason I would not let my 14 year old son read this. At times it appears that he glorifies his heroin use due to the fact that he could pretty much control it. Not a good message for impressionable youth to read.
