Inspired by his grandfather...
Billboard reports that Keith Richards is writing a children's book for Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. The book will be called Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar.
LBB announced that the book will be released this fall and include illustrations from Richards' daughter Theodora. Barnaby Harris and Bill Shapiro will help with the writing.
The "Gus" in the title is Keith Richards' musician-grandfather Gus Dupree. Richards has five grandchildren of his own. His last book, a memoir called Life sold a million copies after being published in 2010.
Richards said: "I have just become a grandfather for the fifth time, so I know what I'm talking about. The bond, the special bond, between kids and grandparents is unique and should be treasured. This is a story of one of those magical moments. May I be as great a grandfather as Gus was to me.
