LIFE by Keith Richards

by highand45

Just because the long awaiting autobiography of the guitarist, songwriter, singer, and founding member of the Rolling Stones,  Keith Richards, is here. Life.

Richards tells the story of how he kicked his heroin addiction by having all his blood transfused in Switzerland, who was — for ten years in a row — chosen by a music magazine as the rocker “most likely to die. and whose solution to spilling a bit of his father’s ashes was to grab a straw and snort it.

In the 547-page memoir he wrote with James Fox, he serves them up like his guitar riffs — in your face, nasty, confrontational, rich, smart, and, in the end, unforgettable.
