1/2 way through book review - Life by Keith Richards
One day last week, I woke up from the weirdest dream about the Stones, and about Keith in particular. I'm SO not getting into that right now, but suffice it to say, Gimme Shelter was stuck in my head when I woke up that morning. I was in the middle of reading The American by Martin Booth at the time, but over the course of listening to the Stones all day at work, I quickly decided that I wouldn't be reading that anymore, because Keith Richards' new autobiography, Life, had been subliminally working its way into my dreams, screaming to be read. It had been on my shelf for only about three days before this happened. Severe. And there's a reason: it's SO GOOD.
I don't know. This is me just about half way through reading this brick of a book. And while I'm finding it hard to put down and I just want to devour the whole thing, I also don't really want it to end. More to come when I finally finish it.
