Reader's Advisory for Rock Stars

Today, Amplified Library starts a new segment, in which we recommend materials for rock starts. This week's featured patron is...

Keith Richards!!

What would we recommend to Keith if he walked up to our reference desk??

It would be hard to not suggest a book of this genre. The Boolean search for "Keith Richards" and "drugs" on Google brought 400,000 results. Oh my. Anyway, this might be a good start for him: 7 Tools to Beat Addiction by Stanton Peele, Ph.D (2004).

Given that Keith has been in a band with Mick Jagger for over forty years, their relationship could probably use some TLC. That is why we suggest Relationship Rescue: A Seven-Step Strategy for Reconnecting with Your Partner by Phillip C. McGraw ("Dr. Phil"), Ph.D (2000).

It would be very healing for Keith to remember friends who have passed, so we also recommend:

- Grievous Angel : An Intimate Biography of Gram Parsons by Jessica Hundley and Polly Parsons (2005)

- Brian Jones by Alan Clayson (2004)

And surely, we would have to suggest this, since Keith Richards was Johnny Depp's inspiration.

We hope that Keith has found everything he needed and that these materials will help him in his life journies.
