With the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the riffs, the lyrics, and the songs that roused the world, and over four decades he lived the original rock-and-roll life: taking the chances he wanted, speaking his mind, and making it all work in a way that no one before him had ever done.
Now, at last, the man himself tells us the story of life in the crossfire hurricane. And what a life. Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records as a child in post-war Kent. Learning guitar and forming a band with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones. The Rolling Stones' first fame and success as a bad-boy band. The notorious Redlands drug bust and subsequent series of confrontations with a nervous establishment that led to his enduring image as outlaw and folk hero. Creating immortal riffs such as the ones in 'Jumping Jack Flash' and 'Street Fighting Man' and 'Honky Tonk Woman'. Falling in love with Anita Pallenberg, and the death of Brian Jones. Tax exile in France, wildfire tours of the US, Exile on Main Street and Some Girls. Ever increasing fame, isolation and addiction. Falling in love with Patti Hansen. Estrangement from Mick Jagger and subsequent reconciliation. Solo albums and performances with his band the Xpensive Winos. Marriage, family, and the road that goes on for ever.
In a voice that is uniquely and intimately his own, with the disarming honesty that has always been his trademark, Keith Richard brings us the essential life story of our times.

Unterhaltsam – aber Vorsicht, deutsche Hörer

Ich habe nicht viel mit den Stones am Hut, bin aber davon ausgegangen, dass der Mann was zu erzählen hat. Hat er, und nicht nur über sich, sondern über viele, viele bekannte Künstler und mehr oder minder bekannte Events.

Das Buch hält sich nicht all zu lange mit der Kindheit auf, was ich persönlich bei Biografien mag.

Johnny Depp liest auf die übliche Art, die man von seinen Off Beiträgen in diversen Filmen gewohnt ist, ruhig und gut verständlich. Joe Hurley hingegen mimt den Irischen Dorftrunkenbold (vielleicht mimt er ihn auch gar nicht), was streckenweise unterhaltsam aber teils auch kaum zu verstehen ist – zumindest für mich. Nach Möglichkeit lieber erst probehören.

half n half

this is a great book if you are at least a tiny bit interested in the stones or rock or rhythm n blues music. dont get me wrong. its mostly all good but I had to cut 2 star off of performance for though I loved how Johnny Depp read his parts (5stars) I didnt like Joe Hurleys parts (2 stars, yeah really, and thats well meant) at all. didnt sound that much believably genuine, too much like a wanna sound cool, yep personally I found it really annoying, forced, played, fake, overexagerrated, lame even though over time I became more and more used to it. Keith himself then narrating at the end of the book is just priceless, a revellation, thats 5 stars at least there.

The book all in all grew more interesting to me towards the end anyway. But I have to cut 1 more star off cause to me it was a bit too detailled here and there, I do not need to hear about everything about Keiths life I guess. So overall this is a great audiobook, just a bit too long and one of the narrators didnt deliver it my cup of tea style. I wish they would have let Johnny Depp read the whole book, his parts are read so much better, light years better.
