As strong as my love is for The Rolling Stones, I was not terribly enamored with Keith's record of his life. I found it interesting, but not very engaging. He's not the best storyteller, despite all that's happened to him in his more than nine lives.

It was, however, worth reading to discover his truth: no blood swapping or falling out of palm trees in pursuit of coconuts, but hell yeah did he do a boat load of drugs. I also enjoyed learning about some of the inside workings of the band, but was really surprised at how little he really writes of anyone besides Mick.

For the length, it wasn't well rounded, maybe a bit too much of everything. Sorry, Keith. I still love the music!
