As lead guitarist of the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the riffs, the lyrics, and the songs that roused the world. A true and towering original, he has always walked his own path, spoken his mind, and done things his own way.Now at last Richards pauses to tell his story in the most anticipated autobiography in decades. And what a story! Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records in a coldwater flat with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, building a sound and a band out of music they loved. Finding fame and success as a bad-boy band, only to find themselves challenged by authorities everywhere. Dropping his guitar's sixth string to create a new sound that allowed him to create immortal riffs like those in "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash." Falling in love with Anita Pallenberg, Brian Jones's girlfriend. Arrested and imprisoned for drug possession. Tax exile in France and recording Exile on Main Street. Ever-increasing fame, isolation, and addiction making life an ever faster frenzy. Through it all, Richards remained devoted to the music of the band, until even that was challenged by Mick Jagger's attempt at a solo career, leading to a decade of conflicts and ultimately the biggest reunion tour in history.In a voice that is uniquely and unmistakably him--part growl, part laugh--Keith Richards brings us the truest rock-and-roll life of our times, unfettered and fearless and true. Richards' rich voice introduces the audiobook edition of LIFE and leads us into Johnny Depp's performance, while fellow artist Joe Hurley bridges the long road traveled before Richards closes with the final chapter of this incredible 23-hour production, which includes a bonus PDF of photos.

This is a lifetime book material that was written to help those who seek answers, to complicated questions, often-times faced, while seeking to love, or to be loved. It is for many who have personal, agonizing, intimate-love relationship issues, that are begging for answers. The book offers many uncommon points-of-view which would help resolve entangling problems in relationships, when humbly received. Many people’s lives are complicated when they have unyielding, unchanging and rigid, points of views. So someone reading has to exercise carefulness to not knock-off certain lessons which would require a change of behavior, habits, and, a turn-away from prior-learned, strongly-held beliefs, and courses of actions or reactions.Life is simpler, and, relationships improve, for people who do not remain adamant against other valid points of views that, unknown to them, they were blinded to. For life to be kept simple, personal relationships and involvements with other people have to be delicately well-managed. The book on true LOVE, is a massive tool to help achieve a properly managed, peace-filled, simple life. It is a book written to help people understand God-ordained kind of love, God approved ways of loving, and God's recommendations about receiving LOVE.
