Wouldn't He Have Been A Hoot To Work With in Library School?

I imagine most librarians would sense a kinship with John Lennon. He seemed the “bookish” rock-n-roller, authoring acclaimed books. One would hardly think of Keith Richards.

In this article about his upcoming autobiography, Richards mentions aspirations he once had of becoming a librarian. He even considered using Dewey to arrange his personal library before deciding it was too much work.

It’s great to find him saying “The public library is a great equaliser.” Imagine a wastral (and rock idol) like Keith praising libraries! It sounds so much more genuine than the usual sound bites politicians lob in our direction.
