Garth: How can you sleep like that?
Del Preston: Listen, sonny Jim. Sleeping like this will add ten years to your life. I learned it from Keith Richards when I toured with The Stones. This may be the reason why Keith cannot be killed by conventional weapons.
Keith cannot be killed by conventional weapons!
Now Keith’s written a memoir called Life (out in November)…
And suddenly I get the impression that I have been looking for the Messiah in all the wrong places.
Keith Richards is the Messiah. He has taken all of our sins, and a truck load of his own, onto his shoulders and he still lives and breathes! Who can really tell just how many times time Keith has died only to rise again? Huh? He could have done it hundreds, nay, thousands of time already!
…cannot be killed by conventional weapons! (or coconut trees)
Life by Keith Richards may just be the greatest book ever published by a human. It may contain the secret to everlasting, everblasting life!
I would like the publishers to add a sub-title – Life (or why I haven’t died yet) by Keith Richards.
What do you think?
Here’s what the Publishers have to say about Life:
Keith Richards’ once-in-a-generation memoir recounts one of the most eventful, influential and closely watched lives of modern times. No other major rock band has been creating music and magic together so continuously.
They recorded some of the most enduring songs of our times including ‘Satisfaction’, ‘Jumping Jack Flash’, ‘Honky Tonk Woman’ and ‘Start Me Up’, written by Keith and his writing partner and Stones vocalist Mick Jagger.Born in Dartford in Kent in December 1943 in the same cottage hospital as Jagger had been delivered five months earlier, Keith’s personal roots were in the south of England. But his musical roots were in R&B and it was this that brought him together with Mick, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Brian Jones.
This is the story of The Greatest Rock n’ Roll Band in the world as only Keith can tell it. He describes not only how the music evolved but supplies the truth and context to the tales of sex, drugs, guns, more drugs and of course rock n’roll and the timeless music that have helped define the band’s international reputation.
