About the Author
Victor Bockris, poet, interviewer and non fiction prose writer, has spent four decades writing about the artistic heroes of the 20th century and the cultural life of his home city New York. He is the author of major biographies of Andy Warhol, Patti Smith, John Cale, Lou Reed and others.
'Richards and Bockris are definitely as good as it gets' Julie Burchill in The Spectator Richards emerges as more a tortured artist than a junkie, more a generous party-lover than a materialistic star in this well-organized, complimentary biography. Publishers Weekly
