Johnny Depp reads to me
Ok, so I might be stretching the truth just a bit. The truth is I recently began listening to Keith Richards' autobiography, Life, read by Johnny Depp and I don't think there could be a more perfect reader. Depp's droll tone conjures Richards (except Depp is easy to understand!) and when he slips into a British accent it doesn't sound fake (a must for me). Life is a bit more thoughtful than most rock & roll memoirs: there's more here than just sex, drugs and rock & roll. Those are included, of course, but this is one story worth listening to, especially with Johnny Depp reading it.
