Born on December 18, 1943, Keith Richards has somehow survived 61 years of the pirate's life. Congratulations, Keef!
Besides displaying an impressive physical constitution to be able to survive his decades of legendary romantic hard living, Keef is also a musician and composer of some note.
Notably, along with his co-writer Mick Jagger, Keef must be rated one of the top dozen songwritingest SOBs in the rock music tradition. The man who wrote "Satisfaction" and "Ruby Tuesday" and "Stray Cat Blues" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want" is no one to be sneezed at.
Thanks for all the great songs, Keef.
