Keith forking Richards is having a book signing at the Piccadilly Waterstones store on November 3rd. The first 450 people there get a wristband, guarenteeing them a signed copy, buy if you get there early enough you'll get to meet him! Who wants to go with me?? I'm not sure what time it starts yet, but I'm definitely gettin there wicked early.

Who's in?

Seriously? No one?? I don't want to have to go by myself (I will), and none of my friends want to go that badly...

C'mon. Keith Richards. C'mon...

You just made my day.

I'd rather chew off my own eyelids, frankly.

Again, not working so I will be there early! I'm thinking 1pm....

I know there are no cutsies but if you want in, I will be there! Let me know and I'll tell you what I'm wearing that day.

I had a huge adolescent crush on Keith Richards (I know!) and would totally go to Waterstones with you to meet him, if I wasn't on the wrong side of the Atlantic ocean. (As it is, would you tell him "hey," from me?)

Ditto to Desdemona's response. Yet another reason to regret living in America.

I am a Google Queen. There was a snippet on the Waterstone's website:

Meet Rock and Roll Legend Keith Richards
Keith Richards
Life: Keith Richards
WATERSTONE'S PICCADILLY
Wednesday, 3 November 2010, 5:00PM

The rock and roll legend will be signing copies of 'Life'. The first 450 queued will be issued a wristband to get the chance to meet Keith and get their book signed. Please read full T&Cs here: http://www.waterstones.com/waterstonesw ... 200000430/

I will still be there, you can meet me when you get there...I'll say you are my sister/brother or whatever if we get angry stares.

I would SO love to go! Unfortunately I have to work, and I doubt they would be sympathetic to me having a day off to meet Keith (though if I were an employer, I would absolutely think it was a reasonable excuse). Take pictures, take notes, and post every single little detail afterwards!

My husband is going to take a half a day and wait in line with us...maybe you have a doctors appointment you made months ago that you just cannot miss?!?

ohh! ooh! We should get dinner somewhere after and croon about how old/hot Keith is/was. My husband will croon too...

Personally I think Keith will be hot forever, even if he lives to 100. And if I did bunk off work, I would never be able to mention it to anyone I work with, which would mean I would probably spontaneously combust from the pressure.

I'm not into Keith Richards but I fully support bunking off work to go & meet him.

I once got to work at 5pm & had found a reason to leave by 10 past because my friend (who is now my husband!) texted to tell me he'd managed to get me a ticket to a sold out Green Day show!

I have agonised about this! but I really can't - I work in a school and someone would have to cover my classes, and I have some really bad classes on Wednesdays, so would feel even more guilty about that. But I want details, details, details after you've been!

Bumping this because it is tomorrow!

Are you still going Helsinki? Don't forget to post afterwards!

My sister bought me the book at the weekend - there is a picture of a very young Keith on holiday in my hometown! I was ridiculously excited by this.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is still closed. Double check to avoid disappointment!

Have fun, guys :)

So did you go? Is Keith still hot? Or just cool? We need to be told!

Ahh, sorry to dissapoint but no we didn't :( Something unexpected came up for Shovel so she couldn't make it and I was feeling a bit mehh that day. Not so bad, but bad enough that I didn't want to stand outside alone for 4 hours. Ahh well...next time!

I did wear my tie-dye shirt with a huge Keith Richards face on it though, so I kiiind of felt like I was with him...
