#TIMELESSTIME ➪ Keith Richards and Mick Jagger with the American vocalist Nona Hendryx having a drink during the Stones’ US Tour, 1965.
Happy Birthday, Mister Richards! December 18, 1943 ― ∞.
↳ December 18, 1943, Keith Richards was born. He defines the rock’n’roll itself. Some people consider him as a true guitar hero, as a brilliant songwriter, others think he’s an old junkie, an old captain who was able to lead his barque throughout his life. And what a life. Fifty years and more dedicated to rock. For fifty years he has bestrode rock like taggle-haired Titan, oozing the sex, drugs, demonic danger and rebellion that forged the entire rock era. Today he’s the behemoth who’s still rolling and who virtually knock the globe off its axis with every of his riffs. But since he was a 18-year-old blues kid he has built his legend from the lowliest jazz club via tabloid outrage with the Stones, menace-to-society counter-culture rebellion, drug busts and the most fireband rock’n’roll music ever made. The ultimate Satisfaction, he represents the past, the present and the future of the greatest rock’n’roll band on the planet.
