THE ROLLING STONES rocker KEITH RICHARDS is writing an autobiography about his time in the band and his turbulent relationships with drugs and alcohol. The guitarist, 63 - who once claimed to have snorted a combination of cocaine and his father's ashes - will reveal all about his wild life in the frank memoirs. A source says, "Keith is working on the book at the moment with his old friend, bestselling White Mischief author James Fox... It's a dream team."

Like one of those "before" pictures. If you can remember when Keith looked like this, you're older than dirt-- like me. Still it's hard to believe that he was ever this young.

If it's even only half the story it should be worth reading.

Then I'm old as dirt too. I can hear the cords of "you can't always get what you want" maybe, "dead flowers"....personaly, I would consider "bang a gong, get it on" T-Rex, baby. Now that's a send off!

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
