If Mick Jagger is the face of the Rolling Stones, the flesh and blood is surely Keith Richards. Joint composer of most of their hits, and minister to overall effect via a guitar style that has earned him the name "The Human Riff," Richards has played a key role in shaping the band's distinctive sound. Sixties historian and rock journalist Alan Clayson leaves no stone unturned in this exhaustive account of Richard's life: from his early days in art school and the take-off of the Stones' first single in 1963, to turbulent times in the '60s and 70's and his battle with heroin addiction, right through to the current activities of this quintessential rock icon. Keith Richards is the definitive biography of the original bad boy of rock 'n' roll.
