Synopsis

Gus and Me by Keith Richards

Reviews

...[a] charming picture book that tells the story of Keith Richards and his relationship with his grandfather...whimsically illustrated by Keith Richards

; he is an inspiration to every London child who peeps a recorder or strums a guitar. I cannot think of another member of the British artistic, cultural or media world who has done so much or who has so widely penetrated the global consciousness. David Attenborough? Stephen Fry? He knocks them into a cocked hat... Arise Sir Keef, I say, and if there were any damn merit in it, he would have the Order of Merit, too. -- Boris Johnson
