My husband claimed that he was the Rolling Stones' biggest fan, which is probably close to the truth. He owned every LP, CD and DVD that the Rolling Stones issued. He went to all of their concerts, and had the ticket stubs to prove it. He wore Rolling Stones t-shirts, and could quote the lyrics to any of their songs, on demand.
But in all actuality, Keith Richards was his hero. Not Mick Jagger or Charlie Watts. Not even Ronnie Wood! Keith just happened to be a Rolling Stone, and that is why he liked the band. My husband even wore a skull ring just like Keith's! He collected magazines with Keith's photos, put them in frames, and hung them on the wall with the photos of our family members. He collected Keith's interviews from Rolling Stone magazine, read all the books about him (and by him), and owned Keith's solo albums. He was definitely one of Keith Richard's biggest fans!
Me? Mostly, I just like Keith's shoes. He wears different ones at each concert, and I think they are pretty cool!
There is so much more to Keith Richards than being lead guitarist for the Rolling Stones. And for that matter, much more than cool shoes. He is a talented singer, songwriter, producer, actor and author, and just an altogether fun guy!
