Bluewater Productions
Release date: January 5, 2012

He’s one of the greatest rock musicians alive and the fact that he’s still alive is a wonder – he’s Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards and this is his story.

Orbit: Keith Richards is a biographical comic from Bluewater Productions which gives us the down and dirty on the life and crazy times of Keith Richards, who’s been a driving force behind one of the biggest rock bands in history. Richards is responsible for mega-hits like “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Brown Sugar,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” and “Honky Tonk Woman,” to name just a few of the many popular songs he wrote. The musician is also known for other things, like his long-term major drug use and his many run-ins with the police. It’s been a mystery how this man, who’s now 68 years old, is still alive after all the drugs he’s done.

Keith Richards Life

The eBook deal of the day today for the Amazon Kindle is Life, the 2011 autobiography by Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, for only $3.99 (that’s 60% off the regular price of $9.99).

Note, this deal is valid only for today, Wednesday, September 14, 2011, until midnight PST.

If you’d like to own a physical copy of Life, the book is also available in paperback for $11.10 and hardcover for $17.85.

Richards recently stated that there was talk of bringing his autobiography to the big screen.

The guitarist has lived one wild life, so I can only imagine the kind of drug-filled stories of rock and roll excess that are recounted in his book. For under four bucks, I think it’s worth checking out, especially if you’re a fan of the Stones or would like to read about his journey in one of the most famous rock bands in the world since the 1960s.

Life

“Keith Richards is shooting heroin into his eyeballs and still touring all right! I’m getting mixed signals! I picture nuclear war and two things surviving: Keith and cockroaches!” – Bill Hicks

Keith Richards, the legendary Rolling Stones guitarist and part-time pirate, is about to become a movie star. Sort of.

A film based on Richards’ best-selling autobiography Life, published last year, is in the works, according to a recent interview the famed Stone gave to the British website The Telegraph after receiving Writer of the Year honors at the GQ Men of the Year Awards. Richards said in the Telegraph interview, “There are feelers out at the minute [but] I’m in no rush right at the moment. Also, how are they going to find me? The idea of a succession of Keith Richards coming down is horrifying.”

DVD Review: Shine A Light

Shine A Light DVDShine A Light
Featuring The Rolling Stones
Directed by Martin Scorsese
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release Date: July 29, 2009

Masterfully captured by Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese, Shine A Light sheds some light on the worldwide musical phenomenon that is The Rolling Stones.

In the initial planning for the film, one gets the sense of watching two very similar superegos — Scorsese and Stones frontman Mick Jagger, squabble over camera techniques and lighting arrangements which very much put a damper on the opening performances. Jagger seemed to be breathless and a bit robotic, if not downright bored, through the first set. Fortunately, he seemed eventually to get used to the melting hot movie lights and learned to avoid lingering in one place for more than a few seconds for fear of serious burns; he also must have adjusted to the video cams on the mini cranes which he felt would block the views of the audience members nearest to the stage and gave in to his sheer talent, which resulted in an unforgettable concert after a seemingly shaky start.
