  Great read - even if you don't like the Stones.

I have never been a big fan of the Stones, therefore I brought this book on a whim, also I've always struggled with over indulgent, self worshipping biographies of the rock elite.. But... This is something else. A small lad from a scruffy part of London, turned superstar and ultimately becomes the worlds most famous Junkie!
Keith's story needs to be heard. Even after I read the book, I still didn't really like him or the Stones, but the story of unbelievable excess, beautiful women and Super Rock Stardom surely cannot be matched anywhere on the planet! Best rock biography I have read by a long way! Good ole Keith... how you are still with us is a question only the Man himself could answer!!

  Excellent.

I agree with the review below in that the story is quite slow to begin. However I disagree that the book is poorly written. This book is interesting, informative and written with an incredible honesty, warmth and sense of humor.

I am not a massive Rolling Stones fan but I thoroughly enjoyed this and would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of biography's about people who have lead extraordinary lives.

Written by Rob, aged 25 and 3 quarters.

  Meh!

I love The Rolling Stones but couldn't get hooked on this. It starts so slowly and quite frankly isn't particularly interesting, when things do get going i find the tone of the book difficult to follow, as it tends to jump manically between topics!
