Keith Richards wanted to be a Librarian!
After decades partying in a haze of alcohol and drugs, Richards will tell in his coming autobiography, entitled Life, that he has been quietly nurturing his inner bookworm.
As a child growing up in the post-war austerity of 1950s London, he found refuge in books before he discovered the blues.
He has declared: "When you are growing up there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equaliser."
