Spotlight on Keith!

Keith Richards was born December 18th, 1943 in Dartford, Kent, England. He met Mick Jagger at Wentworth Primary School in 1951. In 1962, the Rolling Stones were born with Keith on guitar.

In April of 2006, Keith fell out of a tree while on holiday in Fiji, and landed on his head. Later that year, Keith signed on to play Jack Sparrow’s father in the third Pirates of the Caribbean film. In March of 2008, Louis Vuitton announced Keith as the new face of LV. Coincidence??

Here’s the new photo that’s going up on billboards all over the world’s urban landscape. Annie Leibovitz snapped the pic…

You just can’t help but love ol’ Keith.

  • keith has always got those two songs live- one is always great and the other is the ballad that is perfect for a bathroom break.

  • Thanks! Thanks! Once more, with feeling: thanks!

  • Thru and Thru is such a great song, and it’s used for this great menacing effect in the end of the second season of the Sopranos (

    Another great Keith hit was ‘how can i stop?’ from Bridges to Babylon.


  • Barbara it! Thanks!

    Yeah… Keith’s a classic.

    No… I didn’t say “class act”! Class-ick!!! As in, one of a kind… unique… in a league of his own… a throw-back to another time… a ‘real’ rock star.

    Damn… I’m glad he’s still around.


  • You are friggin awesome, thanks.
