The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has signed a $7 million deal to write his autobiography.

Remember when we first reported that Keith Richards of English rock band The Rolling Stones worked on an autobiography? Here we bring you further details on the project. The guitarist is said to have signed a more than $7 million deal to finish the book.

The memoir, slated to be published by Little, Brown and Co. in the fall of 2010, is described as a tome that will trace Richards trek from cherubic choirboy to rock 'n' roll survivor. "It will be his life's story," the New York-based publisher said Tuesday July 31st. "For nearly 50 years, he has been at the very center of the vortex of stardom and of entertainment as a cultural force. He's a thread running through the whole thing."

Rumors on the street say, Richards' memoir has sparked a bidding war which at last pushed its price to more than $7 million, such amount said to be a hefty sum for a music-based book which usually not big seller.

Currently untitled, the memoir will be written with James Fox, author of the 1982 murder mystery "White Mischief" who's an old friend of Richards' as well.

Richards thus becoming the second band member of the Rolling Stones to write a memoir, following in the footstep of former bassist Bill Wyman, who wrote "Stone Alone" in 1990. Frontman Mick Jagger once tried to write an autobiography but soon got bored and abandoned the idea.
