** One suspected reason for his survival is that he has a very rare genetic mutation that renders him largely immune to the negative side effects of those drugs. Richards himself also notes in his autobiography that he always took special care to avoid increasing his dosage, which many drug users do not avoid doing and which is a sure way to increase one's risk of overdose (though it's still a risk even if one does exercise that much self-control, since the consistency of drugs can vary and thus it's not possible to be certain how much, or for that matter even ''what'', one is taking).

To be fair, his genetic mutation also may be one reason he was even able to exercise that much self-control in the first place.

* GrowingTheBeard: ''Music/{{Aftermath}}'', the first album solely written by Jagger and Richards.

* GrowingTheBeard: ''Music/{{Aftermath}}'', the first album solely written by Jagger and Richards. ''Beggars Banquet'' is sometimes considered to have done this a second time, as it launched a four-album streak that is now widely regarded as one of the strongest series of releases in rock and roll history.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: Justified with 1978's ''Music/SomeGirls''. Music critics had written off the Rolling Stones as outdated with the emergence of PunkRock and disco, but the Stones thought otherwise with ''Some Girls'' - which proved popular with critics and listeners alike. It helped that Mick Jagger was a keen follower of the punk and disco scenes in New York and London. It also helped that a lot of punks grew up listening to the Stones.

* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music of Awesome]]Awesome]]: They weren't called "The World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band" for nothing. In particular, the four-album streak of ''Music/BeggarsBanquet'', ''Music/LetItBleed'', ''Music/StickyFingers'', and ''Music/ExileOnMainSt'' is a staple of any respectable "greatest rock albums of all time" or "greatest albums of TheSixties[=/=]TheSeventies" list, and ''Music/{{Aftermath}}'', ''Music/BetweenTheButtons'', and ''Music/SomeGirls'' frequently make such lists as well. They were also one of the world's best singles acts for quite some time; the three-CD box set ''Singles Collection: The London Years'' has a bountiful supply of AwesomeMusic, while you can't go wrong with any of the tracks on the band's best-known hits collection ''Forty Licks'' either. In conclusion, have fun with the ArchivePanic!

** "Harlem Shuffle," originally a Bob & Earl song from 1964 and covered by the Stones for ''Music/DirtyWork'' in 1986, definitely fits here as well. It sounds so prototypically Stones that few even knew it was a cover before the days of the internet.
