Keith Richards, a member of the Rolling Stones and widely considered to be one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time, has made a point of living life on his own terms—even when those terms have far exceeded standards of convention and propriety. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he opens up about his earliest years in postwar Kent; learning guitar and forming a band with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones; the rise to prominence of the Stones and the famous shows, tours, and records; his occasionally fraught relationship with Jagger and his romances with Anita Pallenberg and Patti Hansen; his struggles with drug addiction and his run-ins with the law in various countries—nothing is off limits. Richards’s story is, in many ways, the history of rock music itself and a cultural snapshot of the last four decades.

 

Keith Richards, miembro de los Rolling Stones y generalmente considerado uno de los mejores guitarristas del rock de todos los tiempos, se ha dedicado a vivir una vida bajo sus propios términos—aun cuando esos términos han excedido por mucho las convenciones. Ahora, en su autobiografía muy esperada, se sincera sobre su niñez en Kent de la posguerra; aprender a tocar la guitarra y formar una banda con Mick Jagger y Brian Jones; el ascenso de los Rolling Stones y los famosos conciertos, las giras y los discos; su tensa relación con Jagger y sus romances con Anita Pallenberg y Patti Hansen; su lucha contra la adicción a las drogas y sus encuentros con la ley en varios países—todo se pone sobre la mesa. La historia de Richards es, en muchos sentidos, la historia del rock mismo y un vistazo cultural de las últimas cuatro décadas.

"One of the greatest rock memoirs ever."  Rolling Stone, on the English-language edition

"Richards’ . . . writing is spare and incisive, the narrative tone rarely self-serving, which is certainly something to be celebrated in celebrity autobiography."  Booklist, on the English-language edition

"Entertaining . . . a slurry romp through the life of a man who knew every pleasure, denied himself nothing, and never paid the price."  New Yorker, on the English-language edition
