    Now at last Keith 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....

    Overall

    I've read several reviews and must agree with those that say that the narration is terrible, not well done, or does not make sense. Joe Hurley did a wonderful job. He should probably done most if not all of the book. The last several chapters narrated by KR himself, are good because you hear his true voice - cirgarettes being lit and all. JD is terrible. In the beginning his voice is AmeroEnglish and a cheap KR immitation at the end. It was really distracting and held no continuity.
    THAT BEING SAID....the STORIES KR tells are hilarious in their historical context. He is unforgiving and takes no prisoners. He names, names. He tells it like he remembers it and does not hold back. Very different from Eric Clapton's "couched" version of a bio.
    I'm a woman and a feminist and I was not offended by KR's use of language pertaining to my sex. I'm 43...he's 66. Different times, historical context is important!
    I loved how he described his passion for music and how he and his cohorts of the time pursued their craft. I appreciate how much he loves his art.
    The real hero in this book is his son Marlon. How he came out to be a well educated, well adjusted, fully functioning and straight (as in not f'ed up on drugs) adult, is a testimony to his own internal and personal strength. He really did learn from the mistakes of his parents.
