KEITH RICHARDS: He Just Keeps Going
In 2002, Robin Williams joked that "there is a cure for whatever bio terrorism they throw at us, and it lies within Keith Richards... I know that we may all be dead and gone, but Keith will still be there with five cockroaches..."
With a high tolerance for drinks and drugs, numerous arrests, brain surgery and legendary tales of blood transfusions and smoking his father's ashes, Williams might be onto something as Richards turns 70 today (Wednesday).
Arguably the nicest and most carefree artist on the planet, as well as the master of such legendary guitar riffs for such Rolling Stones' classics as "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Brown Sugar" and "Honky Tonk Woman," Richards is celebrating the big day with his family on vacation in Africa.
