Deceased former Autograph drummer Keni Richards was writing his story book

The music world lost another member of the family when former Autograph drummer Keni Richards passed away on April 8, 2017. Details of how Richards passed away have yet to be publicly revealed.

It’s no secret that Richards‘ friendship with Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth opened some doors for Autograph including opening for the mighty Van Halen on the latter’s tour in support of the diamond certified selling albums 1984.

Recently, one of Richards‘ friends shared some Facebook posts from the drummer and arts aficionado in the closed group Your Backstage Pass. One of the posts (see below)┬áreveals that Richards had started writing a “story book” entitled Short Stories and Long L.I.E.S., which included an excerpt about his invitation to jam with the one and only David Bowie:
