Just finished Keith Richards’ autobiography, Life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


I’m not a hard-core Stones fan – not by a long shot. Their longevity though, is something of a marvel and Goddess knows there have been plenty of hits.  Many of us have grown up to their songs;  so I was keen to get my hands on this book.

It’s a fat book, but I couldn’t put it down. It’s conversational, and fast-paced. It doesn’t gloss over the drug years (or decades) but  it doesn’t make them the focus, either.

Mostly, I found his approach to his music really inspiring. He very much lets the song come into creation through himself, rather than dictating to the song how it should be.  I felt a real resonance with this. Worth a read.
