"I want to write a book that is honest and truthful, especially about myself," Taylor told BANG Showbiz (via Gibson.com). The 62-year-old guitarist, who joined the band after the death of co-founder Brian Jones and played on such classics as 'Exile on Main Street,' says he will also explain why he quit the group in its prime.
"It certainly wasn't because I didn't like the rest of the band, or had a huge falling out, or anything like that. It's much more personal than that," Taylor continues. "I kind of loved it. I loved it and I hated it. The more successful the Stones became the more seriously they took themselves."
Taylor said his project will differ from the controversial tome Richards released last fall. "I don't want to write the kind of book that will shock people, about the scandals, sex, drugs and rock and roll," he explains, "because Keith's done that with his book."
