Richards recently stated that there was talk of bringing his autobiography to the big screen.
The guitarist has lived one wild life, so I can only imagine the kind of drug-filled stories of rock and roll excess that are recounted in his book. For under four bucks, I think it’s worth checking out, especially if you’re a fan of the Stones or would like to read about his journey in one of the most famous rock bands in the world since the 1960s.
It’s hard to imagine a celebrity memoir–or any memoir for that matter–that is as easy to drink in (so to speak) as Keith Richards’s Life. Richards is as comfortable in his bones as a worn pair of boots, and Life captures the rhythm of his voice so effortlessly that reading his tale is like sharing a pint with an old friend–one who happens to be one of the most iconic guitarists of all time.
