“keith is sick, cynical, and sarcastic, but all in the nicest possible way, of course.”
happy christmas from the rolling stones.
apparently this little promo was made 1964. it was a joke in response to the press constantly playing up the stones’ long hair/how they ‘never’ got haircuts.
happy birthday, mr. keith richards!

keith’s diary, 1963. love the scribbled out section of “people who’ve got it in for us.”

i almost died of pure joy on sunday at the JFK library. here’s why.
1. i was within 15 feet of leonard cohen, paul simon, chuck berry, elvis costello, al kooper.
2. i was about 5 feet away from keith richards. i waved at him as he was getting on the elevator. he looked straight at me and smiled. it was a life highlight.
3. bob dylan sent an email to congratulate chuck berry [on the PEN new england songwriting award] that said, “give my regards to leonard cohen, the kafka of the blues, and lord byron keith if he shows up.” the greatest. no one says it like bob.
4. leonard cohen made a short, wry speech. and paul simon talked for a bit.
5. keith and elvis played chuck berry’s “promised land” on stage.
still processing all of this. it felt surreal, especially since i didn’t even plan on going to the event until the last minute, but it was all the more awesome for its spontaneity. a lucky day if there ever was one.
