Born in Dartfold, Kent, England in 1964.

We need to start thinking about what kind of world we are going to leave Keith Richards.

A few quotes to get us in the mood.

“Music is a necessity. After food, air, water and warmth, music is the next necessity of life.”

“I mean some doctor told me I had six months to live and I went to his funeral.”

Half of his biography sentences start with “Somebody told me that I…”

You may be cool, but you will never be as cool as Keith Richards turn down his guitar then clock a dude with said guitar, then getting back to playing and turning up the volume again. All in Tune.

One last interview interview.

Love Robin. Miss Robin.
