* BadAss: Doesn't back down from anything. Once during a concert, a man jumped on stage and rushed towards Richards and Mick Jagger. Richards stopped playing, knocked the guy out cold by smashing him in the face with his guitar, then resumed playing ''at the exact place in the song where he would've been had he not stopped for a moment.'' Afterwards, Richards went and bailed the man out of jail and said the Rolling Stones wouldn't press charges, because he's also a nice guy.

Unfortunately, despite his talent, he is most remembered for his [[AddledAddict amazing amounts of drug intakes]], and other 'misquotations' from his long career. He once famously responded to an interviewer asking him what the strangest thing he had ever snorted was by saying 'my father, [[AshesToCrashes his ashes ground up and snorted]].' This article had to be changed by his management, since it stated incorrectly that he ground his father's ashes up [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne 'like cocaine']] when in truth it was [[NoExceptYes 'with cocaine']]. Also, they incorrectly stated that he listened to Music/{{Motorhead}}, not Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart.

* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: The amount of drugs this guy has taken in his life. Also during a Rolling Stones concert in Sacramento, California, in September 1965, before performing the song "The Last Time", Richards noted his microphone was pointing away from him. To put it in the right direction, he smashed his guitar against the microphone, causing it to give him an electric shock, which rendered him unconscious for seven minutes. Luckily, Bill Wyman rushed to his aid in time to get the guitar away from his body (the shock had melted away three of its strings). Later on, in 2006, he concussed himself after falling off a coconut tree while on holiday in Fiji, only to be nursed back to health in NewZealand. He later offered his gratitude to the surgeons in New Zealand who operated on him, saying that "[[http://www.nzherald.co.nz/entertainment/news/video.cfm?c_id=1501119&gal_cid=1501119&gallery_id=139548 I left half my brain there]]".
