For half a century he has been the heart and soul of the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band. A riff master of the highest order, his direct, incisive and catchy licks have energized such timeless rock anthems as "Satisfaction," "Start Me Up," "Brown Sugar," "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Honky Tonk Women." A disciple of such great guitarists and proto-rockers as Scotty Moore, Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters, Keith Richards has forged a personal vocabulary on the instrument that has influenced generations of aspiring rockers. And as the songwriting partner and lifelong friend and frequent foe Mick Jagger, he formed an indelible team that has secured a spot in the Songwriters' Hall of Fame. The personal life of this larger-than-life rock star and bona fide guitar hero has been plagued by heroin addiction and excessive recreatational drug use, which transformed his one-time baby face into a grizzled visage that bears the scars of a road warrior's life. And yet, he is still here. The ultimate rock 'n' roll survivor, Keith Richards is still rocking and rolling after all these years.
