    Story

    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....

    What did you love best about Life?

    Very in-depth 1st hand account of Keith's life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Knowing where, when and how he was raised you can tell why the music sounds the way it does. Keiths playing is very raw (yet awesome) and uncontrolled at points. Very similar to where he came from.


    What about Johnny Depp and Joe Hurley ’s performance did you like?

    Joe Hurley's performance was stellar. Sometimes I thought I was listening to Keith Richards. He is a natural as a narrator. Just great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just the fact that he hung with all the old blues cats in his formidable years. I also feel like "he got it" when it came to the blues.
    This book made me appreciate his contribution to music and him as a musician more than I already did.

    As one of the greatest rock icons of all time, Gregg Allman has lived it all and then some. For almost 50 years, he's been creating some of the most recognizable songs in American rock, but never before has he paused to reflect on the long road he's traveled. Now, he tells the unflinching story of his life, laying bare the unvarnished truth about his wild ride that has spanned across the years.

    Would you listen to My Cross to Bear again? Why?

    Yes..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Cross to Bear?

    How the band handled Duane's death...


    Any additional comments?

    The reader of the book had a great tone and made me want to listen.

    Im now revisiting all my older ABB records (CDS). I have a new ear when listening to them.

    This book gave me a different perspective on Brothers and Sisters and Eat A Peach. They put their head into the music to deal with Duane's death.

    Obviously Gregory and Dickie Betts have their differences. I like how Gregg pointed out the positives on Dickie and didn't bash him. I found it respectable.
