A well-written book by Keith-pure genius as always. Brings the reader into his life-from the beginning of the Stones to present time. Interesting to see the photos and stories about him growing up in England. Also good to hear about Brian Jones and yes, even the drug usage.
I loved this book. It was so real, unapologetic,straight from the heart. it was so keith as I imagine talking to him would be like. And what a life. Man, he has lived.
I found this to be quite honest and an enjoyable read. I bought a copy for my musician brother as a gift for his discussions on guitar playing.
Disclaimer: never took drugs, never really liked the Stones. I wouldn't have read this book but serendipitously my daughter-in-law made it as an Xmas gift. Thank you so much Franka - it really was an experience.I felt that KR was speaking personally to me. However, I never felt it was a personal rant or tell-all or sympathy type of book. Lots of serious commentary on the music, guitar playing, and the concerts and intra-band relationships.I found the last page touching and a little hard to read - Keith's last night with his Mum. You have my empathy (not "Sympathy1") Mr Richards. It comes to all of us and says something you honor her with the ending.
