Life According to Keif

LifeLife by Keith Richards
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I listened to this book in audio format while travelling this summer. Found that Keith's early life was the most compelling. Once he starts to delve into drugs and decadence, the book was--surprisingly--not as interesting. I would have rather heard more about his musical discoveries and the interpersonal relationships in the band than about how to cut heroin and the ability to jaunt over to Italy for breakfast.

The writing voice captures how I imagine Keith would speak and I was able to easily follow the audio narration.

Other than that, I found that the rich and famous are not that different than you and me. I have friends who could tell similar tales. I would like to know what elevated these boys into being the mythical Rolling Stones. But, ah, perhaps that's another story.
