Keef on "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross

While I wouldn't exactly call myself a Rolling Stones fan, the '69 Stones were one of the models everyone tried to emulate when I was learning to play, I think Keith Richards is now one of _The Guys_ in the same way as his mentors Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters were, and The Rolling Stones, Now!, Aftermath (UK version), Beggar's Banquet, and Exile On Main St. are important touchstones. At some point (prolly when it hits HPB), I'm gonna have to read his memoir Life. In the meantime, I'm listening to this interview from NPR.
