I’ve always liked quote books and this one is a bit of an oddity.
Not only is it quotes, but collected thoughts on philosophy and the path to enlightenment, daily affirmations, recipes and fashion advice from the collected interviews of The Human Riff himself, Keith Richards.
This Rolling Stone has the words “I’m Innocent” inscribed on his guitar picks, and at first glance the book presents a weird and baffling mix. Yet if there’s one thing Keith Richards knows about it’s how not to die, so maybe he does have the good oil on immortality? In his words:
I’ve been closer to death a few more times than a lot of people. And I’ve found out that whatever it is, it’s worth waiting for.
Completely unauthorised by Keith Richards, it’s a fascinating dip into this rocker’s life with a been there, done everything kind of twist. Interestingly, the book also mentions the one thing ‘Keef’ swears he’ll never put in his body – cheese.
So what’s your favourite quirky quote or unusual affirmation? Answers on the back of a comment please…
