Product Overview

The long-awaited autobiography of the guitarist, songwriter, singer, and founding member of the Rolling Stones. Ladies and gentleman: Keith Richards.

With the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the songs that roused the world, and he lived the original rock and roll 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' first fame and the notorious drug busts that led to his enduring image an outlaw folk hero. Creating immortal riffs like the ones in "Jumping Jack Flash" and "Honky Tonk Women." Falling in love with Anita Pallenberg and the death of Brian Jones. Tax exile in France, wildfire tours of the US, isolation and addiction. Falling in love with Patti Hansen. Bitter estrangement from Jagger and subsequent reconciliation. Marriage, family, solo albums and Xpensive Winos, and the road that goes on forever.

With his trademark disarming honesty. Keith Richard brings us the story of a life we have all longed to know more of, unfettered, fearless, and true.

Praise
"[A] big, fierce, game-changing account of the Stones' nearly half-century-long adventure."
"He's been a global avatar of wish fulfillment for over four decades and managed to eke more waking hours out of a 24-hour day than perhaps any other creature alive....As the legendary guitarist for the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards has done more, been more and seen more than you or I will every dream of, and reading his autobiography, LIFE, should awaken (if you have a pulse and an I.Q. north of 100) a little bit of the rock star in you."
"Some readers may delight in Richards's sly have-it-all-ways self-regard, but for me the most winning sections of the book are the tales of his becoming, the way his close adolescent friendship with Jagger and their mutual love for their blues heroes rapidly led to the formation of the Greatest Rock-and-Roll Band in the World. It's a thrice-sung story, but Richards and Fox put the song over well."
From the Publisher
Annotation With this autobiographical opening up, one of rock 'n' roll's most notorious figures gives fans a backstage pass to his life. Many of the more riotous stories--the drug busts, the band fights, the marriages and divorces--will be known to serious Rolling Stones devotees. But it's the little details and the emotional impacts that Richards adds, as well as his frank and personal voice as a writer, that makes LIFE a compelling and illuminating read. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2010.

But it's the little details and the emotional impacts that Richards seems to remember with remarkably vivid clarity, as well as his frank and personal voice as a writer, that makes LIFE an unusually compelling and illuminating celebrity memoir.
