* 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.''

* 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 "I left half my brain there".

Recently, Richards has been made even more famous by Creator/JohnnyDepp, who based the movement of the character Jack Sparrow off Keith Richards. Richards then appeared in the third and fourth ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movie as Jack Sparrow's father, complete with his wife's ShrunkenHead.

->"''Keith Richards'' said that kids should not do drugs; Keith, we ''can't'' do any more drugs, because ''you already fucking did them all!'' There's none left; we have to wait until you die and smoke your ashes! Jesus Christ! Talk about the pot and the fucking kettle!"

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.

* OnlyInItForTheMoney: In his autobiography ''Life'', he says that he formed the side project X-Pensive Winos in the 80's for several reasons: the Stones were on an indefinite hiatus, Keith wanted to get back on the road, and he still had a lot of bills to pay. Later on, he specifically notes he enjoys the royalties that one of the Winos' songs gets from its inclusion in an episode of ''Series/TheSopranos''. He also talks at length about the fact that the Stones barely broke even in their early years due to a heavily-unfair record company contract, and that their renegotiation of their contract in the early 80's allowed them to get much more royalties than normal, which is why they officially licence all their own products (for big paychecks).
* PopCulturalOsmosis: After Jagger Richards is the most famous member of the Stones. But he is perhaps more iconic as an apparently immortal junkie than he is as a guitar legend.
* SmokingIsCool: Still smokes as a chimney at age 70 and looks badass while doing it.
