17. Keith Richards - Life (2010)
One of the most eagerly-awaited autobiographies of all time, Keef's book did not disappoint. The opening chapters are a but unremarkable, depicting post-war life in Kent, but once Keef and Anita are in the back of a Bentley driving to Morocco, leaving the drug addled Brian Jones behind, the psycho-drama of the Stones ramps up. Soon, our hero is living the outlaw life of a drug addict and things take a darker turn. But - incredibly - Keef lives to tell the tale. Full of quotable homilies and advice for any would-be hell-raisers out there.
