Just finished Victor Bockris' Keith Richards: The Biography
which is, I suppose, as good as Keef scholarship is likely to get for a while. It's a good read, best, I think, on Richards' early life and the very early days of the Stones; weakest towards the end. It would be a better book if it were more about one thing or the other-- more about the music, more about the drugs, or more about the scene. Oddly enough, the impression I get from Bockris' book is that The Human Riff is a quiet, shy guy-- kind of sweet, actually. He loves his family, and the drugs seem to be a coping mechanism for him that got out of control.
