Rolling Stones Guitarist Honors His Grandpa in a New Children's Book

Posted: May 12, 2014

Keith Richards, a grandfather of five, remembers how quality time spent with his grandfather, Theodore Augustus "Gus" Dupree, helped him realize his love of music. He will capture those moments and more in the picture book, Gus and Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar, which Little, Brown Books for Young Readers will release on Sept. 9. "The bond, the special bond, between kids and grandparents is unique and should be treasured," Richards explained in a statement. "This is a story of one of those magical moments. May I be as great a grandfather as Gus was to me."
