Richards, Keith -- Life [Book]
London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2010. First Edition. 564pp. Hardcover: NEAR FINE. Dust Wrapper: NEAR FINE. Neat pencil marking indicating First Edition/ Issue # on Half Title. Insignificant crimping around edges of wrapper. SIGNED by the author. A lovely copy.
Arguably the finest blues-based rhythm guitarist to hit rock-n-roll since his idol Chuck Berry, Keith Richards guitar skills were so obvious that one can underappreciate his tremendous songwriting skills. Of course, Richards is just as legendary for his near-miraculous ability to survive the excesses of the rock and roll lifestyle as he is for his musical prowess. His well-documented consumption of drugs and alcohol would likely have destroyed any other mortal . LIFE is rated as the 3rd Greatest Music Book of All Time by Billboard. A fantastic read.
