                Life by Keith RichardsWritten by Mike Arnold
                The main guitarist of the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, wrote a book about his life simply called… “Life”.  This is our first book review on Concert Blast and we may have more to follow. 

                Keith Richards’ book, Life is appropriately named due to that is exactly what it is, a journey through his life.  The book begins as he and Ron Wood are being arrested in Arkansas as they are driving their rental car to the next city during one of the many Rolling Stones tours… and they have plenty of drugs on them, in them, and in the car.

                                    I have told the story here on Concert Blast about how my dad brought home a record player one day when I was about seven years old.  That day changed my life forever and opened the world of music up to me.  My mom was a big country music fan and would buy many records.  She would sit in my bedroom with me and we would listen to many of them.  Loretta Lynn, Bing Crosby, Donna Fargo and the list goes on and on.  There was one album that she bought that I really liked and that was a Glen Campbell album.  My favorite song off that album was called “Gentle On My Mind”.  I soon discovered that this guy had his own tv show each week and I would watch it everytime it came on.  As I grew up and started listening to rock and roll music, Glen Campbell’s music remained on my record player along side Alice Cooper, The Who, Kiss and all of the other bands that I listened to.

                                        Glen Campbell In Concert - Nashville, TN - Ryman Auditorium - 11/30/2011

                                        It was the first of two farewell Nashville, TN concerts from Glen Campbell at the historic Ryman Auditorium.  James Downing of Concert Blast wanted to be there to capture the end of his career and an important era in country music, so he purchased a ticket as soon as they went on sale and received an excellent seat to the November 30, 2011 show.  A seat close enough to capture great photos of the lengendary performer.
