* 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]]".

'''Keith Richards''' (born 18 December 1943) is the rhythm guitarist and a founding member of Music/TheRollingStones, one of the best known members along with Music/BrianJones and Music/MickJagger, and first became famous with them along with Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts during the BritishInvasion. His inspirations have long included Music/ChuckBerry, Jimmy Reed, Scotty Moore (Music/ElvisPresley's guitarist) and Music/BoDiddley. His style is (predictably) a standard blues rock feel, emphasizing chords and rhythm over 'fastest-gun-in-the-west style.'

* SophisticatedAsHell: He's quite attuned culturally and one of his choices for a Desert Island Disc was Vivaldi's "Four Seasons, [[http://www.theguardian.com/music/2015/oct/25/stones-music-bbc his justification]] is:
--> ''I was agonising about this because Mozart is my man, but then I found out reading some of his letters that the only good word he had to say about any other composer was Vivaldi, and then I tried to put this together with being on a desert island... so I chose spring from Vivaldi.''
