Amazing,…..born on December 18th, 1943 “Keef” is still rockin’ at the ripe old age of 71. He’s a pirate, a guitarist, a song-writer and a rock legend and he forever shall be.
What makes Keith such a legend? Here are our top 5 reasons:
- He reckons that on average, he slept only two nights a week for many years of the Rolling Stones' glory years. Which according to his calculations means that he has been conscious for at least three lifetimes.
- When asked what fashion icon he looked up to he replied: “What for? I am one.”
- On the night of the infamous 1967 drug bust, he was so far gone on LSD that when the police arrived at his Sussex country mansion, he mistook them for uniformed dwarves and welcomed them in with open arms.
- In response to being welcomed with “It’s great to have you here”, Keith replied: “It's great to be here. It's great to be anywhere”.
- On Mick Jagger: “The only things Mick and I disagree about is the band, the music and what we do”.
Rock on Keith!
