Legendary electric guitar player Keith Richards is to publish his autobiography this autumn.

The Rolling Stones star told the Independent that fans could expect the book to arrive in shops in October 2010.

He said that it has been strange to read the drafts of the autobiography, stating that he had moments of wondering who would be interested in reading about his life.

But the electric guitar star added that he thinks fans will be attracted by the book and writing it had been a fascinating experience.

"Talking to some of the people that were there and their version of events to try and correlate it all was very interesting, a kind of kaleidoscopic bunch of experiences," Richards said.

Last month, Bruce Springsteen's long-term collaborator Steven Van Zandt told Guitar World that he considers Richards to be the best guitar player of all time.

Van Zandt said Richards had helped expand the possibilities of how the musical instrument could be played during the 1960s.
