Legendary guitarist [lastfm]Keith Richards[/lastfm] will release an autobiography this October, just in time for the holiday season. The book has been in the works since 2007 and will help Richards remember things like his own name and which instrument he plays.
In an interview with British publication The Independent, Richards commented on his reluctance to indulge in his own life story:
“It’s kind of weird writing about your own life. Who’d be interested in that? But then, I realize there is a lot of interest, so… Talking to some of the people that were there and their version of events to try and correlate it all was very interesting, a kind of kaleidoscopic bunch of experiences.”
Here is how we picture Richards’ research going:
Richards: I don’t remember doing that.
Some Person From His Past: Yeah, you totally did do that. You were pretty gone though at the time.
Richards: Very well. I’ll have to write it down then.
The Rolling Stones’ deluxe edition of Exile on Main Street is currently available.
Though there are no current plans for the The Rolling Stones to record in the future, tonight Late Night with Jimmy Fallon kicks off ‘Stones week‘ in tribute of the re-release.
