Music doesn’t sell. What about books?

Keith Richards

I just came up on an interesting article on Roling Stone’s website (the magazine’s website, not the band’s… the confusion kinda fits this article). Apparently, Keith Richards’ book, entitled “Life,” has sold 1 million copies.

That’s one million. If that were albums, it would have been platinum. Sure, The Rolling Stones are extremely popular, and they have audience whose age spans from the past three centuries or whatever, but the number still seems huge, considering many rock bands barely sell a few thousands of CDs nowadays. Not many of those rockers climb palm trees when they’re 62, though, so maybe I shouldn’t be surprised after all. I wonder if the book explains that one.
