Product Description

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards puts down a rock memoir for the ages. The book is ultimately two stories: one of music, misbehavior, and survival; the other a fond, perplexed, sometimes outraged telling of Keith Richards’ life with Mick Jagger, including their battles over control and the destiny of their band. By turns earnest and wicked, sweet and sarcastic and unsparing, the guitarist writes with uncommon candor and immediacy. A life of license and genius merge to present a portrait of a very singular character upon the stage of rock life, Richards cast no doubt about it: it’s a jumpin’ jack flash every which way you burn it. This is one way to the good life. All that music pouring forth? Hey, who else could be so damn lucky! Index. Illus., color photos. 564p.

Strand Staff Reviews

"This book grabbed me from page one. I was really moved by the sheer honesty of Richards who traces, with all humility, his rise from modest beginning to rock n’ roll royalty. His story swings between darkness and light. It is an atmospheric depiction of the wild side of pop music which captures both the exotic and sordid nature of his bohemian world.

This is a marvelous work. It’s energy infiltrates your senses like the stinging thump of an electric strat. A book written like a book should be written to be read." -- Robb P., Art Department Staff
