For half a century Keith Richards has been the heart and soul of the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band. A riff master of the highest order, his catchy licks have energized timeless rock anthems from "Satisfaction" to "Start Me Up." With Mick Jagger, he formed an indelible songwriting team that secured a spot in the Songwriters' Hall of Fame. Renowned music critic Bill Milkowski brilliantly captures the music and the turbulent life of the ultimate rock 'n' roll survivor.
