Like a lot of books on this list – only more so – Life makes you marvel that the guy who lived through all this chaos could end up remembering any of it. In fact, it's hard to imagine how a guy who lived the rock & roll myth as hard as Keith Richards could still talk his way through a transaction at the drive-through window, let alone a book this great. Despite all the bitching about Mick, this book exceeded any reasonable expectation for literary Keefness.
