[lastfm]The Rolling Stones[/lastfm], Keith Richards, spent the last three years working on his autobiography which is due for release October 26, 2010. Author James Fox contributed to the book. We can only imagine the crazy stories revealed between the covers of this one!
Richards told the Independent “It’s kind of weird writing about your own life. Who’d be interested in that?” Then he added “But then, I realise there is a lot of interest, so… Talking to some of the people that were there and their version of events to try and correlate it all was very interesting, a kind of kaleidoscopic bunch of experiences.”
Amazon.com description of ‘Life’:
Now, at last, the man himself tells his story of life in the crossfire hurricane. Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records, learning guitar and forming a band with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones. The Rolling Stones’s first fame and the notorious drug busts that led to his enduring image as an outlaw folk hero. Creating immortal riffs like the ones in “Jumping Jack Flash” and “Honky Tonk Women.” His relationship with Anita Pallenberg and the death of Brian Jones. Tax exile in France, wildfire tours of the U.S., isolation and addiction. Falling in love with Patti Hansen. Estrangement from Jagger and subsequent reconciliation. Marriage, family, solo albums and Xpensive Winos, and the road that goes on forever.
