The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards sells over a million copies of his memoir

Keith Richards’ memoir, Life, has sold over one million copies.

The book was released last year and has since become one of the best-selling rock and roll autobiographies of all time, reports Rolling Stone.

The Rolling Stones guitarist was paid over $7 million (£4.3 million) as an advance for the book.

Keith Richards recently revealed that he has been working on a new X-pensive Winos album.

The guitarist appeared as a guest on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' in May and explained that he is working with songwriter/producer Steve Jordan for the album, which will be his first under the name since 1992's 'Main Offender'.

The X-pensive Winos name is one Richards used for the collectives he assembled for his 1989 solo album 'Talk Is Cheap' and for 'Main Offender'. He said that the new sessions were "starting to blossom" but didn't reveal a release plan.

Richards had also suggested that he was still trying to get the rest of The Rolling Stones to work on new material together, saying: "I'm trying to nail them down but I don't want to crucify them."
