I’m reading “Life” – Keith Richards’ autobiography…… In fact I’m listening to it and can highly recommend it to anyone who loves The Stones or was a child of the 60s!! Johnny Depp is the main narrator (well it would be pretty impossible to listen to Keith’s slurring over 20CDs??) but, although I am less than 25% through, its clear that its a superb description of what it was like to grow up in post-war London and of the early life of the Stones.
Early on there is a hugely amusing (in hindsight) description of the arrest of Keith and a few other members of of the band in Fordyce Arkansas in the mid 70s and the unbelievable tale of what followed in the company of that state’s law enforcement and judicial system. And an overview of how America was really lagging behind in the 60s revolution and that it really was all about the Beatles and the Stones ! Well I would say that ?? Ha ha !!
Read it…..or better still listen to it !

PS – I have seen the Rolling Stones about a dozen times over the years…..they really are “the best rock ‘n roll band in the world” !
