Présentation de l'éditeur

This must-have collection of 50 years of quotes from rock's ultimate survivor, Keith Richards, makes a compelling companion piece to his recent autobiography.

Keith Richards always lacked the guile to give the sort of quotes that served record sales or his own image. The result was usually an interview free of phoney claims or self promotion, even if it might occasionally be tricky to follow - depending on what condition Keith was in when he gave it.

Now, Sean Egan has done a sterling job of organising a huge number of Richards’ published utterances drawn from GQ, Melody Maker and Rolling Stone, plus many more never before seen in print.

Taken together they form a riveting commentary on Keith Richards’ half-century progression from gauche young pretender to craggy elder statesman of rock music.

They also reveal an unexpectedly warm, unpretentious, articulate and honest man who occupies a unique and rarefied role in the history of rock ’n’ roll.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 INTERVIEWS WITH KEEF FROM 1964 TO 2011--INCLUDING A PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED PIECE 17 novembre 2013
Par Stuart Jefferson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This cool little book contains interviews from across Richards' life in The Rolling Stones. Beginning with the 1964 piece on the band's Juke Box Jury debacle (according to the establishment), and ending with a 2011 interview stemming from Richards' appearance at the GQ magazine's "Men of the Year Awards". It may be worth more than 3 "stars" because of the unpublished interview--to each his own.

In between are interviews from a 1966 piece for issue #25 of "The Rolling Stones Book" (about Richards' Redlands home and more innocent times, plus the gardener Jack Dyer--inspiration for "Jumpin' Jack Flash"), a 1971 interview for Rolling Stone (very lengthy), a 1976 piece for Sounds, a 1980 interview for Zigzag (now appearing in it's corrected form, different from original publication), a 1981 piece (known as "Tattoo Me") on The Stones' "Tattoo You" album rehearsal work, a 1983 chat with the Daily Mirror, a piece for Record Collector, and several others. Also here is "The Great Lost Keith Richards Interview", intended for Creem Magazine (which ceased publication before the interview could be published) in 1988. Besides the usual queries, this has some pretty interesting questions and answers in it (Richards' thoughts on the quality of The Stone's CD product, the music business) that make it worthwhile reading.

Fans of Richards will be familiar (check out "The Mammoth Book Of The Rolling Stones" also by Egan) with most of these interviews. But having them in one nice neat little book makes for some interesting, informative, and just plain good reading on Richards, The Stones, and music in general. The interviews really give an impression of their times as Richards and the questions change over the years, and Richards begins to play up his "outlaw" r'n'r image. In these later period interviews Richards is keenly aware of the image he wants people to see, so at times embellishes the facts to fit the image. There's no photos except for the cover, and there's an Index which is helpful.

Besides the "lost" interview fans will be familiar with these pieces, but there's something about these interviews with Keef that keep you reading. They're a reminder of past days (until the late 70's/early 80's) before Richards became fodder for the media as a "bad boy" of r'n'r. Still--enjoyable, interesting, and sometimes informative interviews. Check it out.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A somewhat mixed bag, but an overall positive effect... 29 juillet 2015

If all you know of Keith Richards is his media reputation as a stoner burn-out, you'll probably think that I'm out of my mind when I say that Richards would probably make a very effective life coach/self-help guru. It sounds insane until you read his interviews. A friend of mine kept copies of Keith's (mostly Rolling Stone magazine) interviews on his nightstand for about two years. He would read them before he went to bed each night and read them immediately again when he got up in the morning, to give him a boost. My friend, who is straight-as-an-arrow, was going through hard times for those two years, and he said that Keith's spirit and strength helped pull him through. If you've read Keith's interviews, you know what I'm talking about, that I'm not kidding around.

As for myself, I've read mostly the interviews that he's given to Rolling Stone magazine, which currently has a compilation of those interviews on the newsstands (the clerk who works at the magazine stand that I frequent says they're selling like hotcakes). I've always enjoyed reading these interviews, and they do show Keith to be a fascinating and even inspirational man, but I always thought that the Rolling Stone interviewers (including Anthony DeCurtis and the great Kurt Loder) were always a bit too easy on him. Or even sometimes way too easy on him.

For example, since the early 80's, they've let Richards get away with proclaiming that he's a, quote, family man, unquote. But what kind of family man could he be? Attending school must be hell for his children, given Richards' public image. I couldn't begin to imagine what kind of trouble their classmates have given them. And what about his wife of 30 years-plus? The wife, and the kids, too, for that matter, have had to actually live with this stoner/boozer/chain-smoker. Could you imagine that...? I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in the same house with anyone that fit that description. But Rolling Stone lets Richards get away with this "I'm a dedicated family man" jazz.

My second major problem is with Keith's treatment of Mick Jagger in his interviews.

For example, Richards is still complaining, to this day, about how resistant Jagger was to turning his fair share of Rolling Stone business matters over to him after he had been out of it for approximately 10 years (just about the entire 1970's). Richards goes off on a 10-year drug binge and then (supposedly) cleans up and comes back and tells Jagger he's ready to assume more of the business responsibilities, and when Jagger is resistant to it Richards gets pissed off?? What Richards should be doing is expressing his eternal gratefulness to Jagger for holding down the damn fort and busting his behind for 10 years while he was off on a 10-year high. Jagger is clearly the hero in that story, but Richards tries to spin it otherwise.

Another problem I have with his treatment of Jagger is his constant harping on Jagger's shortcomings and expressing his disappointment over, what he perceives to be, Jagger's chronic loneliness ("He's my mate and I want him to be happy!"). Two things here, Keith. Number one, where do you get off pointing out Jagger's relatively minor shortcomings when you've been addicted to booze and heroin and cocaine and four packs of cigarettes a day?? You've gotta be kidding. And who are you to express sorrow over Jagger's loneliness? If you're so damn happy and un-lonely, what are you doing constantly indulging in all of these vices of yours??

At any rate, I really dig the interviews, but I've always felt the need to vent my frustration in regard to the above matters.

I've also felt the need to take a bit of the onus off of Jagger. In the past, when Jagger has been confronted by the press in regard to these mutterings coming from Richards, he has usually responded, "I don't want to argue." So much of the time (but certainly not all of the time), Jagger has come off as the mature one of the two, without getting any credit for it.

Even with all of the problems I've had with these things expressed above, I strongly recommend these interviews. I wouldn't miss them for anything.

This is a wonderful book, which collects a career-spanning group of previously published interviews with Keith. At best you will have read a very small number of the articles previously, as many were published in magazines with small circulations, and of course the interviews go back as far as 50 years ago. The interviews are almost all substantive and interesting, Even if you've read "Life", Keith's autobiography, this book will still be interesting to you, as more than a few of things he says in his memoir are at odds with things he said years before in these interviews. It is also interesting to see that there are things Keith has been unusually consistent about over the years, for example mentioning repeatedly the importance he attaches to practicing regularly on an acoustic, rather than electric guitar, because in his view playing an electric guitar permits a player to use flashiness to cover up certain inadequacies I should add that the Musicians on Musicians series - of which this book is a part - is in general terrific.

I have never been a fan of the Rolling Stones and I did not really have a picture of Keith Richards, but these interviews were very enlightening and very interesting. They also were very intelligent. I was very pleasantly surprised, not so much because I didn't expect intelligence, but because they were so well done. It appears that Keith Richards has had a very interesting life, and on the whole, has handled himself very well. It also makes me think that at some point I might reassess the music itself.

If your a fan of the Stones or interested in the life of this legendary figure it won't be disappointing. Anyone who has been selling out stadiums for over 40 years and created some of the most well known riffs in rock is worth a look into what make him tick
