If you at all doubt that the Stones are the world's greatest rock and roll band this video will take care of that.
I'm reading Keith Richard's new autobiography Life. Fascinating, hilarious, scandalous, thoughful. His total immersion in and commitment to music is inspiring. The comments about songwriting are especially interesting. He does go on a bit about Mick, but clearly, on every level, that's been and remains the most important relationship of his life, however fraught.
I met and partied with Keith at Steve Jordan's loft in New York one New Year's Eve. I'd never seen the Stones at the point, but later I saw the X-pensive Winos at the Orpheum in Boston. What a show that was!
