    I'm writing this for myself way than for a possible buyer, especially as there are many reviews that are in common for the most part with mine. I'm 73 and The Stones of '63,'64 and '65 grabbed me, thrilled me with the joy of music and educated me. I knew their individual names but nothing about each except what formed in

    Fans of the Rolling Stones will enjoy this book. It is very gritty and to the point. I've read other reviews where readers say some chapters are overlong, but I disagree. You need some in depth background to just what was going on in those ea

    I have admired Kieth Richards as a musician for many years, and enjoy his rare interviews. However this was a hard read. After half way I resorted to flicking through pages looking for something interesting and without a co

    Worst autobiography I have ever read. Far too clever and arty for the normal run of the mill music fan. Put it down many times only to pick it up again thinking it would get better, I was so wrong. I gave up after

    'Life' by Keith Richards is a wild romp through the legendary life of a rock legend, a king of the guitar.

Exile in France wildfire tours of the US isolation and addiction Falling in love with Patti Hansen Estrangement from Jagger and subseuent reconciliation Marriage family solo albums and Xpensive Winos and the road that goes on foreverWith his trademark disarming honesty Keith Richard brings us the story of a life we have all longed to know of unfettered fearless and true. In Life you are transported to Keith s library where you can imagine the man chain smoking cigarettes bottle of Jack Daniels in hand whilst strumming on the guitar and telling you the many stories of his past That is the effect that this book has it is written very candidly and openly and there is a real feeling of the warmth of Keith s character The narrative of the story charts his life from early childhood all the way through but is littered along the way with anecdotes stories inputs from friends and fellow musicians etc There are also many stories of Keith s musical heroes and how and why they inspired him to do what he does His absolute love of music comes through the whole way through the book and it is so interesting to read about He writes about his inspirations how he has written songs and how a song or riff evolved It is sometimes astounding that he was able to write so prolifically while under the influence of so many drugs On that subject there are entertaining stories going on a acid fuelled road trip with John Lennon for example There are also the completely crazy and the scaryThe whole thing is a wonderful read entertaining funny poignant and honest A fantastic memoir

I was a bit disappointed when I finished this one I was wanting to read about Keith Richards and the The Rolling Stones There s not as much Rolling Stones here as I had hoped but I suppose you can t fault the author The title Life is aboutwellhis life Nothing in the title of this book includes the words Rolling Stones So there are a lot of other aspects of his life here and even though there is a fair amount of Stones stuff I simply wanted What consumed most of Keith Richards life was drugs Oh Lord do we read about drugs It s truly a miracle this man is still alive Although he claims he s been clean since the 80s there s plenty of dirt and disturbance from the Keith Richards annals to fill an encyclopedia set A few of the stories are a bit interesting but they get old in a hurry When he talks for than two pages about one of his drug dealer s German upbringing but then talks less than a half of a page on the making of an album such as Sticky Fingers you may see where some like myself come away disappointed On a related note perhaps he was too stoned to remember the making of many of the classic albumsFor those who are somewhat familiar with the individual you know that his whole existence of late seems to be tongue in cheek Every interview you see with him has him mumbling and giggling throughout He s comprehensible during his rants and can be somewhat entertaining and that s the general atmosphere throughout this book You definitely feel like Keef is telling you his life story For that you need to give him credit I ve always been a believer though that when you re a celebrity writing an autobiography who else would write an autobiography you should write mainly on the comings and goings of yourself in the spotlight since this is what your fans are the most familiar A little bit of your upbringing and influence is ok but stick to the interesting stuff pleaseIt also doesn t help that he comes across as an unrepentant former junkie If you re a parent and you want to keep your children away from drugs you should not use this man as an example It s a bit bothersome for example when Keith recalls a car crash where he was stoned and fell asleep at the wheel Since none of the seven people in the car fortunately are killed he looks back at the episode and slags the whole thing off with the attitude of Hey I m a good driver I just made a mistake So get off my case You can t help but feel as though one minor twist somewhere around say 1971 could easily have killed the man and history would remember him very differently see Brian Jones Still I m glad I read the book and he does a very good job accomplishing what he set out to do There were parts when I would get to his umpteenth drug binge where I would just scan the pages but there really is enough here to keep you interested Just be warned there s in this book on his recipe for a Shepherd s Pie than there is about his second solo album Nothing at all Why So as long as you re cool with expectations not being too high you re probably ok to pick this one up Something in the Wine The Moonstone Series junkie If you re a parent and you want to keep your children away from drugs you should not use this man as an example It s a bit bothersome for example when Keith recalls a car crash where he was stoned and fell asleep at the wheel Since none of the seven people in the car fortunately are killed he looks back at the episode and slags the whole thing off with the attitude of Hey I m a good driver I Empire State Building: The Making of a Landmark just made a mistake So get off my case You can t help but feel as though one minor twist somewhere around say 1971 could easily have killed the man and history would remember him very differently see Brian Jones Still I m glad I read the book and he does a very good I Love You Almost Always job accomplishing what he set out to do There were parts when I would get to his umpteenth drug binge where I would Gloom Town just scan the pages but there really is enough here to keep you interested Just be warned there s in this book on his recipe for a Shepherd s Pie than there is about his second solo album Nothing at all Why So as long as you re cool with expectations not being too high you re probably ok to pick this one up

Huck 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. I thought the biography was well written and kept my interest I would suggest having access to the internet while reading it since you will be tempted as I was to put the book down and listen to the singers musicians and Rolling Stones songs cited in the work This would be particularly true of someone not familiar with the music or artists cited by Richards James Fox was listed as a contributor to the book I do not know it contributor euals ghost writer but if it was a biography using a ghost writer to fill in structure or edit the work it was done very well I found myself wondering who wrote what and if you told me Richards wrote the whole thingI would believe it Prior to reading the book I had a completely different impression of Richards the book caused me to look at him as than a guitar player How much of the evidence justifying that change in impression is for others to verify but for me it was an entertaining read I always ask if I would want to know the people who are subjects of the books I read Of all the biographies and autobiographies I have read this was one of the toughest judgements I had to make My best answer is I would not like to know or meet or talk to the Keith Richards of the first 145 pages of the book but would be very interested to know the man who wrote the last two pages of the book
