So Bobby Keys put a book out in February and is doing book appearances as well as touring with a band.

curmudgeon, Thursday, 2 August 2012 16:36 (eight years ago) link

! any word on what the book's like?

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 2 August 2012 17:47 (eight years ago) link

The reviews are mostly good although some say it is not tell-all enough-- they want details on how Keys drug issues affected his relationships and family. No bad-mouthing of the Stones in it.

curmudgeon, Thursday, 2 August 2012 20:09 (eight years ago) link

I wouldn't have imagined there'd be much bad-mouthing from Keys, him and Keef were pretty tight
