Friends in ‘Life’: The Social Network of Keith Richards

Keith Richards and Patti Smith both published memoirs recently. In a previous post I listed the social network of Patti Smith manifested in her book, and today we look at that of Keith Richards from his new book “Life”.

Mark Jenkins wrote an article (December 2010) in Washington Post comparing and contrasting these figures and their books, and he identified a few key figures that appear in both works. Of course, a simple network analysis quickly reveals all the personalities found in both works:

Josephine Baker, James Brown, William Burroughs, Donald Cammel, Johnny Carson, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Scott Fitzgerald, Allen Ginsberg, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, John Lennon, Gerard Malanga, Anita Pallenberg, Lou Reed, Keith Richards, Larry Rivers, Frank Sinatra, Terry Southern, Phil Spector, Roger Vadim, Andy Warhol, Hank Williams.
