Gus and Me

Publisher: Orion

Keith Richards, legendary musician and founder-member of the Rolling Stones, had a real life and a fairly standard childhood before being catapulted into global stardom. He also had a granddad, Gus, who inspired his lifelong love of music and with whom he shared a very special bond.

In this beautifully presented book/CD combo, Richards tells the story of his granddad and his first guitar: a story illustrated by Theodora Richards, Keith's daughter.

Rolling Stones fans will particularly enjoy sharing this story with their children and grandchildren, both by reading aloud and by listening to Richards' distinctive rendition of his own memoir. A celebration of a love of music and the special relationship that can only exist between children and their grandparents.
