Reviews about Keith Richards: The Biography (7):
Mullador
Since Keith Richards is God, I read his Life when it came out. It is one of my all time favorite reads. A former girl friend (I'm talking 45 years ago) reminded me that I met Victor briefly back then, when they were both teenagers. So I ordered it just for the hell of it. I've only read the first couple of chapters so far. It is well researched and quite entertaining. I was immediately struck by how similar Keith's recent autobiography tracks this bio. Almost like Keith just changed "he" to "I."
Hulis
Looking at the volume of references in the back of the book, its clear the author has spent a great deal of time investigating his subject. In this regard, while its true that a lot of the content already exists elsewhere, the unfolding story is well presented with appropriate quotes from contemporaries to back up the authors point of view along the way. The book draws you into a world of drugs, women, touring, drugs, breaking up, and more drugs! Mick Jagger comes out looking less that rosy, with a number of clipped quotes and responses, and Charlie Watts is barely mentioned throughout, which is odd for a founder member of the Stones! That aside, its a worthwhile read and you come away understanding the tortured nature of Keith and other musicians of his ilk.

Originally published in 1992, the digital edition includes a 2002 update from the author, reviewing the previous decade and drawing on their mammoth tours of the 1990s. That's a worthwhile inclusion, given that this was the period where the Stones moved from mere stadium fillers to a corporate behemoth. One downside is that sometimes the typeface on the digital edition is not consistent on every page, with some uneven line and word spacings (on my Windows Phone 7 device).
lacki
I doubt Keith could tell his OWN story this well (in fact I doubt it very much). This book really seems to give the whole picture. It is well worth the expense.

Particular highlights: (1) VERY detailed information about Keith's drug use history. It is amazing the man is still alive; (2) VERY detailed info. about Ron Wood, his own problems and his role in the Stones; (3) Very detailed info. about Keith's solo career. I just wonder why the Winos broke up. Anyway, if you are a fan of Keith or the Stones you simply can't pass this book up.

About 1/4 of way thru, enjoyable, informative, easy read, light and entertaining, would recommend to Stones fans and Richards fans interested in learning or reliving early and career Stones history
