really liked it
Read from July 12 to August 21, 2011

So much better than I thought it might be. Quite readable and Keith comes off pretty well. Sure if you think about about a lot of the incidents (the guy had it coming so I kicked him in the teeth, etc), they are a little troubling, but for the face of rock 'n' roll, I guess that's what you expect.

Written, quite likely, by being interviewed into a tape recorder with other stories told by people who were there at the time inserted in between. Sure, it isn't high art, but I really enjoyed reading it and learning the back story behind Ruby Tuesday, Angie, etc is priceless. Much like the Rolling Stones themselves, it gets less interesting by the 80s but I still kept reading until the end.
