We requested a copy of Keith Richard’s new autobiography from the publisher hoping to give you a sneak preview right here on Insomnia. So far, we haven’t seen one.
However, we did stumble across these new excerpts from the book that have been made available by The Times to new readers:
Keith Richards is one of the most influential musicians of our times. With the Rolling Stones, he created the riffs, the lyrics and the songs that roused the world, and over four decades he lived the original rock and roll life: taking the chances he wanted, speaking his mind, and making it all work in a way that no one before him had ever done.
Now, at last, the man himself tells us the story of his life in the crossfire hurricane.
