Keith Richards: The Unauthorised Biography, by Victor Bockris


Here’s the front cover to the lovely Polish edition of Victor Bockris’s Keith Richards: The Unauthorised Biography, published now by our dear pals at In Rock in Poznan.

The first edition of this biography came out in English over twenty years ago now, became an instant classic, and has since been updated several times. Along the way it has also been translated into and published in twelve foreign languages. This In Rock edition is the first Polish one.

‘Richards and Bockris are definitely as good as it gets’

Julie Burchill in The Spectator

Meanwhile, here’s the ever-thrilling Monkey Man, from the classic Stones album Let It Bleed, for our tune of the day. Turn it up and have a wonderful new moon weekend all

Keith Richards: A Life in Pictures

Rock’s indestructible hero has been photographed by many people over half a century…

Keith Richards: A Life in Pictures is a coffee table gem featuring more than 300 photographs in colour and black-and-white by Annie Liebowitz, Jim Marshall, Michael Cooper, Gered Mankowitz, Terry O’Neill, Deborah Feingold, Neil Preston and Mark Seliger.

The NME ran a gallery of pictures here – all taken from the book, to mark Keith’s 72nd birthday.

The Japanese edition is now available from Space Showers.
