Keith Richards

My friend Claire got my the new Keith Richards memoir for my birthday and I can't put it down.  I love the little tidbits he provides (for example, he thinks The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds is "overproduced").  Also, who knew he had a young love affair with Ronnie Spector?!  On page 164 he writes:

"The first time I went to heaven was when I awoke with Ronnie asleep with a smile on her face.  we were kids.  It doesn't get any better than that.  Just more refined.  What can I say?  She took me to her parents' house, took me to her bedroom.  Several times, but that was the first time.  And I'm just a guitar player.  You know what I mean?'
