Keith Richards Turns 70!


Rolling Stones’ guitarist Keith Richards has mystified the critics and made it to the age of 70 on December 18.

It was a close thing. Just a few years back he fell out of a tree and was hospitalised. Late in 2012 the Stones made a return to live performance with shows in London and New York and earlier this year they toured toured America and then played Knebworth and Hyde Park.

Now Keith is about to return to the road with the Stones for an Australia, New Zealand and Asian tour. Listen to Keith talking to Triple M’s Lee Simon and read what the media has been saying about his birthday:
