BOOK REVIEW

KEITH RICHARDS by Christopher Sandford
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: April 1, 2004

"Less than a glance at what drove 'the man death forgot.'"
Hollow if high-revved portrait of the Rolling Stones guitarist and songwriter from rock-music biographer Sandford (Mick Jagger, 1994, etc.). The only thing missing, tellingly, is his subject's voice. Read full book review >

LIFE by Keith Richards
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Oct. 26, 2010

Recorded in sporadic bursts at various points in his brief career, these journals attest more to the late artist's amazing industry than to his analytical or descriptive powers. Read full book review >
