Great! Glad hubby gave the book to me as a birthday present this year. I'm such a big Keith Richards fan, but couldn't bring myself to reading it as the hardcopy is quite heavy and with a 2 year old son I only find time to read on the train to work. But now I have a real good reason to finally read on. I only read the first chapter so far and loved it.
Thanks for choosing it. :loveshower:

Oh great choice! :cool:
I'm about halfway through the book too. I opted for the Kindle version of this one though (suddenly regretting). I have a big project coming due during the discussion timeframe, but I do hope to pop in now and then!
Can't wait for the tidbits! :ok:
ONBC rocks! :guitar:

Here is a link to the interview Keith did with GQ just before he was given his award this year. I didn't manage to get hold of a copy of the magazine so its the first time I've seen it too. But he is talking about the book so thought it relevent to post.

Great little interview. I was very sorry when it was over. Thanks Liz. It put me in a Keef frame of mind.

Thanks.

Intriguing DITHOT :lol: if anyone is interested the Photographer for the shoot was Mark Seliger, someone we are familiar with, with so many of Johnny's lovely shoots. He has also done many of Keith before too

Thanks for the heads up on this, GG. I am going to start a separate thread on this because I think it warrants it.
