That’s right, a children’s book, and it’ll be complete with illustrations from his daughter Theodora Richards, who is named after her great-grandfather.
Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar is about Keef’s grandfather, as the title suggests, called Theodore Augustus Dupree who played in a jazz big band and introduced the 70-year-old rocker to music – well done Theodore!
“I have just become a grandfather for the fifth time, so I know what I’m talking about,” Richards said.
“The bond, the special bond, between kids and grandparents is unique and should be treasured.
“This is a story of one of those magical moments. May I be as great a grandfather as Gus was to me.”
Keef won’t be doing all the writing however, he’ll be assisted by Barnaby Harris and Bill Shapiro.
It will be published by Little Brown Books.
