Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has teamed up with his daughter to release a children's book.
The legendary rockstar and his daughter Theodora Richards are set to release the picture book, Gus and Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar, which is based on his own life.
Richards' grandfather Theodore Augustus Dupree, who was known as Gus, was a jazz musician and introduced Keith to music.
He said: "I have just become a grandfather for the fifth time, so I know what I'm talking about. The bond, the special bond, between kids and grandparents is unique and should be treasured.
"This is a story of one of those magical moments. May I be as great a grandfather as Gus was to me."
The book will be published as a hardback and ebook later this year.
The Rolling Stones returned to London's Hyde Park today - after a gap of 44 years and one day.
Last time, Mick Jagger wore a white dress and began by quoting from a poem by Shelley. This time, Jagger - now Sir Mick and celebrating his 70th birthday in three weeks - was wearing a leopard print jacket and he launched straight into Start Me Up, the band's last top 10 hit.
It was the Stones' first gig in Hyde Park since that historic free concert on July 5 1969 - just two days after the death of founder member Brian Jones, who was found dead in the swimming pool at his Sussex home shortly after leaving the band.
The Stones' set finished, as it began, with fireworks.
The veteran band had played for two hours, closing their initial set with Brown Sugar, then encoring with You Can't Always Get What You Want and a crowd-pleasing Satisfaction.
The Rolling Stones will not decide the final setlist for their Hyde Park return tonight until just before the show -as they are still trying to agree on the songs, Keith Richards has revealed.
In an interview for Absolute Radio, guitarist Richards said : "We are still differing about certain songs and stuff, and also we have to think that we have another one coming up....and what we want to do next week.
"So, there is still a bit of juggling going on. But, I mean those things can be decided on the night."
Tens of thousands of fans stream into the outdoor venue this afternoon in anticipation of the band's headline performance, 44 years after they last played.
Tonight's show - part of the Barclaycard presents British Summertime - is the band's first appearance at Hyde Park since they played a celebrated free festival there in 1969.
It was the band's first appearance since the death of former guitarist Brian Jones, and featured the first performance by his replacement Mick Taylor - who will also take a guest role tonight.
The Rolling Stones will travel back in time this weekend re-staging a classic concert from the summer of '69.Read the full story ›
One of the most eagerly awaited performances in Glastonbury Festival's history began with a bang tonight.

Glastonbury headliners The Rolling Stones are due on stage at 9.30pm on Saturday night.

Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger said he finds his music career "intellectually undemanding" and his original job choice of being a teacher might have been a "gratifying" alternative.
The veteran rocker also said he considered a career as a dancer but was put off by the prospect of "so many injuries".
Jagger, who was still a student at the London School of Economics when the Stones were starting out, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "A schoolteacher would have been very gratifying, I'm sure.
"There are millions of things you would have loved to have done, a politician, a journalist... I thought of being a journalist once.
"All these things you think of when you're a teenager, you can think, well, I would have liked to have done that but that's completely pointless but I don't feel frustrated for a lack of control at all and I'm very pleased with what I've done.
"Everyone wants to have done more things in their lives. It is a slightly intellectually undemanding thing to do, being a rock singer, but, you know, you make the best of it."
