I've had this book in the queues for such a long time, one to dip in and out of at those moments when a bit of amusement was required, I thought. Until the day I wasn't dipping, and couldn't put it down.

As far as rock 'n' roll autobiographies go, it's a good one. Keith is frank, expansive, intelligent, and entertaining. A good mix of early life, personal life, band life, music theory, and the whole " sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll" aura that surrounds the rock stars of the twentieth century. Keith's musicianship is nice to read about, his ideas on the blues, guitars, open tuning, "weaving," and country music. Is influence on the Stones is immense. As far as the drugs go, he does say every time he goes on an extended story about drugs that he wouldn't recommend it, and he mentions some bad things about drugs (especially heroin), but the sheer pride he takes in recounting his exploits and his production and his love of the drugs might send the wrong message. But, Keith is Keith. I wish Jagger would write such an autobiography, but I don't reckon he is constitutionally able to be so frank, self-effacing, and self-deprecating that Keith is at times. I am glad I devoted time to reading this. (I could read an entire short book on Keith's reading habits and book collection. When will that one be written?)… (lisätietoja)

On the first page of his memoir Keith Richards describes the Rolling Stones as “mere minstrels,” which is true and also a massive understatement. Of course the story opens with a drug bust. This one is in Arkansas, but there are plenty others throughout the book (Toronto, England) as well as some near misses. Fortunately there is more music than drugs in the book. And presumably his life.

Richards first took an interest in music by listening to the radio with his mother, then Elvis flipped the switch for real and music became his obsession. The Stones started by teaching themselves to play Chicago blues from records, “unpaid promoters for Chicago blues.” Writing songs wasn’t the priority at first. “We were just playing American music to English people.” Their manager, Andrew Oldham, astutely made Mick and Keith start writing music of their own. We know how that went.

At some point in the book you get the impression that Keith is a brilliant musician to the exclusion of most everything else, except for drugs for a long time. You can see he truly cherishes music, musicians and collaboration with the like-minded. It seems the money and fame are good, but not the point of it all.
