Highly Anticipated Music Bios, Part I: Life, Keith Richards's autobiography (out next week, but already topping our bestsellers list) has been getting plenty of press this week. From CBS News:

In the book, co-written with Richard's pal James Fox, the guitarist takes swipes at former Rolling Stone band mates Brian Jones and Mick Taylor and calls Beatle John Lennon a silly sod" and poet Allen Ginsberg "a gasbag."
