GQ Magazine’s Writer of the Year, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Keith Richards[/lastfm], will have his best-selling autobiography made into a movie, according to the guitar great.
The man with five strings and nine lives told The Telegraph at the GQ Awards that the film is in the early stages, but he is in no rush to get it made. “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,” he told the Telegraph.
And according to UltimateClassicRock.com, it appears that there will be a lot of paperwork to sort through involving the rights and getting his bandmates to sign off on the project, as they they are the source of much of the content in the book.
Though a biopic on Richards’ life may be a project far off in the distance, you can still watch Keith and the rest of the Greatest Rock Band of All Time in the comfort of your own home. Performances from the Rolling Stones on the Ed Sullivan Show will be released on DVD in the coming months!
In the meantime, watch a bit of a documentary with Keith Richards discussing his early life as a young lad.
