Happy Birthday today (Dec. 18) to Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones. He’s 73. Also celebrating today is guitarist Elliot Easton of The Cars (63), former Scorpions lead guitarist Uli Jon Roth (62), and former Whit Lion drummer Greg D'Angelo (53).
They're separated by genres and generations, but Keith Richards and Justin Bieber both know a thing or two about run-ins with the law and building bad reputations, so it's perhaps unsurprising that they reportedly hit it off after a recent chance meeting.
Keith Richards will return for his third appearance in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movie series as Captain Jack Sparrow's father. And this time the Rolling Stones guitarist plays a pivotal role in the film's plot.
Keith Richards has always said that the goal of the Rolling Stones in the early days was to bring the blues to London. In a new interview, he discusses a side benefit, which threw him for a loop back in the day.
