A heartwarming story from someone we usually view as rough and ready. Keith Richards has written an ode to his Grandfather, Gus, telling us how he bought him his first guitar and encouraged him as he learned how to play. Keith declares that he still thinks of Gus every time he goes on stage. In the end papers, he shares some family pictures and his desire to be as good a grandfather as Gus. The book is beautifully designed with illustrations by Keith's daughter, Theodora. Keith's reading on the CD is an unexpected treat.

A wonderful book to share with a young musician - and great appreciation for a special grandparent. Includes audio cd with musical performance by Rolling Stone's Keith Richards.

Amazingly sweet and poignant story about the childhood of Keith Richards, the wildman of the Rolling Stones. With illustrations by his daughter and includes a CD of Keith reading this story as well as accompanying with some nice acoustic guitar.
