Keith Richards Is Writing A Children’s Book

Keith Richards is writing a children’s book. With his daughter. It’s about the first time he played the guitar, according to the BBC.

English: Keith Richards, live in Hannover

Here’s a bit more of a description:

“Gus and Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar is a “rare and intimate look” into his early years.”

I’d read it. Here’s a bit more from the BBC:

Richards was introduced to music by his grandfather, jazz musician Theodore Augustus Dupree.
It will be published as a hardback and ebook later this year.
“I have just become a grandfather for the fifth time, so I know what I’m talking about,” said Richards.
“The bond, the special bond, between kids and grandparents is unique and should be treasured. This is a story of one of those magical moments. May I be as great a grandfather as Gus was to me.”

That’s nice. Isn’t that nice? Good ol’ Keith.

Here’s a video of Keith onstage in Abu Dubai in February of 2014. He’s still got it, fans still love him… grandpa Richards was wise to introduce lil’ Keith to the geetar.
