Publisher's Summary

Long before there was a band, there was a boy: a young Keith Richards, who was introduced to the joy of music through his beloved granddad, Theodore Augustus Dupree, affectionately known as "Gus," who was in a jazz big band and is the namesake of Keith's daughter, Theodora Dupree Richards. Gus & Me offers a rare and intimate look into the childhood of the legendary Keith Richards through this poignant and inspiring story.

Still A Very Humble Man

What an awesome and unique gesture to show his sincerest gratitude to his grandfather who really started it all and brought out the musical genius in Keith.

Young kid & loving granddad & guitar = the bliss of childhood

I came upon this book without looking for it. Sounded good. Got it. Played. Played again.

A gentle, good story about a boy's love for his granddad and a magical outing to the music store and the alchemy of those pieces fitting together. Loved this one. And the added guitar and drum lines are a bonus.
