The most elegantly wasted man on the planet, "the human riff" - just a few of the things Keith Richards has been called throughout his life, which itself seems like a crazy adventure that no one else but Keith could ever survive. It's all there in gritty detail - the rock n roll lifestyle, the danger, the laughs, the highs and lows and everything in between. At times it feels like you're sitting there having a drink with him as he's telling you everything. I'm still amazed that he could even remember it all.
The lead guitarist for The Rolling Stones recounts his life, from a youth obsessed with Chuck Berry to the formation of the Stones and their subsequent stardom, and discusses his problems with drugs, the death of Brian Jones, and his relationship with Mick Jagger.
