Keith won't need Mick for this one

August 02, 2007|From the Associated Press

Rolling Stone Keith Richards is working on a memoir, the object of a multimillion-dollar bidding war that will be published by Little, Brown and Company in 2010.

Richards, the master riffer, legendary partyer and songwriting/sparring partner with Mick Jagger, received $7.3 million for the book, according to a publishing insider with knowledge of the negotiations.

Currently untitled, the memoir will be written with James Fox, an old friend of Richards' and author of "White Mischief."

Richards' life and work have fascinated millions, but his story is hardly untold. Richards, 63, has been interviewed countless times, speaking candidly about his music, heroin addiction, love life and battles with Jagger. He is quoted extensively in "According to the Rolling Stones," an authorized oral history published in 2003.
