Keith Richards The Rolling Stones
Keith Richards' forthcoming autobiography has caused a bidding war among several publishing companies.

Publishers have already offered The Rolling Stones guitarist an advance of $7.3 million (3.5 million pounds) according to industry insiders.

As of today (July 26), the bidding has been narrowed down to two publishing houses, reports the New York Post. The companies are HarperCollins, a unit of News Corp., and Little Brown, a division of Hachette Filipacchi.

The memoirs are expected to include details of Richards' two famous arrests and his romantic relationships with models.
