A chat with Keith Richards

You can't tell unless you squint, but the above image is Keith Richards striding across the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2013...

I didn't get to speak to him (or any of the band) that night, but he recently conceded to a BBC interview to promote the re-release of his solo album Keith Richards and the Expensive Winos, Live At The Hollywood Palladium.

Amazingly, he phoned me directly from his house in Connecticut. There was no PR or intermediary "connecting the lines" - just Keith, calling up for a chat. Truth be told, it was cleverly disarming. And it set the stage for a slightly rambling conversation... Me slightly in awe, him full of one-liners and sentiment.

The best bits all made it onto the BBC.
Here they are.
