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....

AMAZING BOOK AND NARRATION

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 11-03-10

I have downloaded over 50 audiobooks here on audible.com and this book is the best hands down!! What an amazing life Mr. Richards has led. He pulls no punches here, spills his guts! I couldn't stop listening. Any fan of music will love this book.
The guy who wrote the review here saying the book is ruined by an American narrator has no idea what he's talking about. Half of the book is narrated by Joe Hurley who sounds just like Keith with a thick English accent and the rest is done superbly by the one and only Johnny Depp. This guy didn't even listen to the book I bet.
This book rules!! 5 stars!!!

James Hetfield, with whom many years ago Mustaine founded a band known as Metallica, once observed, with some incredulity, that Mustaine must have been born with a horseshoe up his ass. That's how lucky he's been, how fortunate he is to be pulling breath after so many close calls. And Hetfield is right. Mustaine has been lucky. He has been blessed. But here's the thing about having a horseshoe lodged in your rectum: It also hurts like hell. And you never forget it's there.

Great, great ,great... Excellent story for any/all Megadeth and Metallica fans or just metal/music fans in general. Great story full of all the details of Daves life. Alot about his Metallica days.. The Narrator sounds similar to Dave and does a great job. Very easy to listen to. I couldn't stop listening.. I have bought close to 60 books from audible.com and this is one of the best.. I also suggest Scar tissue from anthony keidis. I wish audible.com would get more heavy metal biographies. This one was awesome!!! Dave ROX!!!! Mike in Boston

Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

I can't rave about this book enough... It sucks you in... I loved the lead character, Judas Coyne. He reminds me of James Hetfield from Metallica. This story keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I am sad its over but can't wait to listen again. Joe Hill is my new favorite writer... LISTEN TO THIS BOOK.... TRUST ME....
