Richards Reflects On Book Success

The Rock memoir Keith Richards put out this year turned into a blockbuster of a book, selling well over a million copies.  He clearly hopes that some segments in Life and comments the Rolling Stones guitarist made about Mick Jagger during his publicity tour promoting the book don't end up being seen as what busted-up the Stones.  During an interview with the British edition of GQ magazine, Richards admitted the process of authoring the book made him conclude '...I'm a much meaner bastard than I realized', but also made him come to appreciate how much friendship means to him.  After saying the idea of getting the band back together for ' more bash' is important to him, he acknowledged that his comments about Jagger (story) caused additional tension between the two, but said, 'Mick was obviously a bit peeved, but that was yesterday and this is today.'  Of band mate Ronnie Wood's book Keith said his fellow guitarist has '...a much better story to tell' than what made it into print, adding that he hopes drummer Charlie Watts gets around to writing one because it is the one he'd most like to read.
