(Gibson) The Rolling Stones Keith Richards' memoir, Life, has become one of the best-selling rock autobiographies of all-time. As reported by RollingStone.com, the legendary guitarist's tell-all book has sold more than one million copies, a total that's the literary equivalent of achieving platinum status in the music world.

In addition to earning Richards a massive payday he received a $7 million-plus advance for the tome the book earned nearly universally positive reviews. Chief among these was effusive praise lavished on Life by rocker Liz Phair, in a lead review for the New York Times.

Richards, who penned the book with British author James Fox, chronicled the arc of his life thus far, including his post-war boyhood, his adventures with The Rolling Stones and the dynamics of his creative bond with Mick Jagger. He also wrote freely and openly about his past troubles with substance abuse. more on this story
