The book, while co-written with James Fox, presents Keef's life in what appear to be his own words. They resurrect many images from the 1940's through current times. Although his early days were spent in Great Britain, they refer to music that essentially was created in America. He and a few others were heavily influenced by American Blues, created by black musicians whose roots were in the American south. The book brings back the early days of the Rolling Stones and takes us up to the present. It is an enjoyable experience to read this in Richards' wry words.

A good deal of LIFE's justified praise is owed simply to the idea that Keith Richards penned (more or less) his autobiography. There's a committed, dedicated musician and music historian amid all the hype and hypodermics. Much of LIFE is riveting, although it engenders a certain amount of sympathy for Mick Jagger.

Best book I read all year. Like finding out your favorite uncle has been in the Stones all this time -- and has 500 cool stories to share.

Love this book. Who knew Keith would be so articulate! This feels like Keith's authentic voice and I as listened to the audio version, Johnny Depp was perfect as the narrator. I am often disappointed by autobiographies because the author often does not live up to my expectations. Keith does and I am more a fan of his than I was before I "read" the book. I plan on purchasing a hard copy of the book in the not too distant future.

Product details pages Hachette Audio - English 9781600242403 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Johnny Depp and Joe Hurley capture Richards's rock 'n' roll spirit in a wise, charming, and textured narration of the famed guitarist's memoir. Tracing Richards's trajectory from boyhood in England through the formation of the Stones to the band's rise to world domination, this audiobook is chock-full of frank revelations and enlightening stories behind the music. The three readers do superb turns — but the seemingly arbitrary switches between them can be jarring and confusing. Depp's narration is steady, well-paced, clear, and grounded. He produces a delicious range of voices for dialogue (most notably a drunk judge in Arkansas), and Richards himself sounds a bit like an elderly, bluesy Jack Sparrow. Hurley captures the voice of Richards throughout, narrating in a gritty, growl that is spot-on. And sections read by Richards are a real treat; his raspy voice is unmistakable and haunting. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
"Synopsis" by , Keith Richards, one of the Rolling Stones' founding members, opens up about his childhood, rise to superstardom, and personal life. From his turbulent relationships, including his well-publicized estrangement from and reconciliation with Stones' front man Mick Jagger, to his drug shenanigans that made even more of a legend amongst his fans, Richards tells all in this autobiography.
