    I was a bit disappointed when I finished this one. I was wanting to read about Keith Richards and the The Rolling Stones. There’s not as much Rolling Stones here as I had hoped, but I suppose you can’t fault the author. The title, ‘Life’, is about….well…his life. Nothing in the title of this book includes the words “Rolling Stones”. So there are a lot of other aspects of his life here, and even though the

    I'm writing this for myself way than for a possible buyer, especially as there are many reviews that are in common for the most part with mine. I'm 73 and The Stones of '63,'64 and '65 grabbed me, thrilled me with the joy of music and educated me. I knew their individual names but nothing about each except what formed i

    In ‘Life’ you are transported to Keith’s library where you can imagine the man chain smoking cigarettes, bottle of Jack Daniels

    Worst autobiography I have ever read. Far too clever and arty for the normal run of the mill music fan. Put it down many times only to pick it up again thinking it would get better, I was so wrong. I gave up after only one third of the book, very unusual for me.

  8. says:

    'Life' by Keith Richards is a wild romp through the legendary life of a rock legend, a king of the guitar.

    What I really enjoyed the most about the book was the implicit links and mentions of The Rolling Stones and their music from the very beginning. It gave the reader a clear route to follow through the entire thing which was nice

Life AUTHOR Keith Richards, James Fox

The long awaited autobiography of the guitarist songwriter singer and founding member of the Rolling Stones Ladies and gentlemen Keith RichardsWith The Rolling Stones Keith Richards created the songs that roused the world and he lived the original rock and roll life Now at last the man himself tells his story of life in the crossfire hurricane Listening obsessively to C. I m writing this for myself way than for a possible buyer especially as there are many reviews that are in common for the most part with mine I m 73 and The Stones of 63 64 and 65 grabbed me thrilled me with the joy of music and educated me I knew their individual names but nothing about each except what formed in my mind from watching them Jagger and Richards enthusiastic Watts a bit aloof along with Wyman Jones a bit provocative all of which didn t matter because the music was so great Along with The Staple Singers I learned of the blues from them So when I began reading Life I expected a seriousness that was companion to the music I was wrong and shocked as what was in my face page after page was an aloofness a condescension a flippancy of attitude and and an huge ego totally unexpected I know I couldn t spend twenty seconds in Richards company without having to spin around and take off He treats his life as a joke and is full of himselfand I don t get why He had a solid childhood with parents who supported him yet he carries the traits I just described as well as having gotten into a pattern of alcohol and drug abuse that would have killed almost anyone else I learned from another book that it was from Jones that he learned open guitar tunings and slide guitar yet he barely credits Jones for these all important teachings I also learned that it was Jones who showed Jagger how to play harmonica I got to around page 80 and begin skimming When I got to page 112 I packed it in I wish things had been different I m glad that I ve still got their music some from their post Jones years as well as their talent had and has them making some great music still

review Life AUTHOR Keith Richards, James Fox

Huck Berry and Muddy Waters records learning guitar and forming a band with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones The Rolling Stones's first fame and the notorious drug busts that led to his enduring image as an outlaw folk hero Creating immortal riffs like the ones in Jumping Jack Flash and Honky Tonk Women His relationship with Anita Pallenberg and the death of Brian Jones Tax. Fans of the Rolling Stones will enjoy this book It is very gritty and to the point I ve read other reviews where readers say some chapters are overlong but I disagree You need some in depth background to just what was going on in those early years If you are of a certain age I m in my late sixties you will identify with the 1960s and remember hopefully the news coverage of The Stones at the time I found this book to be very readable a page turner and very informative

Exile in France wildfire tours of the US isolation and addiction Falling in love with Patti Hansen Estrangement from Jagger and subseuent reconciliation Marriage family solo albums and Xpensive Winos and the road that goes on foreverWith his trademark disarming honesty Keith Richard brings us the story of a life we have all longed to know of unfettered fearless and true. I have admired Kieth Richards as a musician for many years and enjoy his rare interviews However this was a hard read After half way I resorted to flicking through pages looking for something interesting and without a constant reference to drugs The book is written much in the style of Keith s normal conversation and I often needed to re read parts to understand what he was talking about not least when he uses drug takers terminologyThe book is packed with references to his many acuaintances most of whom not many people will ever have heard of This was a turn off for me as were some of his extraordinary experiences which I suspect came with a large pinch of salt
