Keith Richards Year by Year: 1963-2016 Photographs

The long, legendary and sometimes dangerous career of Keith Richards has now lasted over five decades. If you find that hard to believe, we’ve got proof right here; one photograph of the Rolling Stones guitarist taken each year from 1963 right up until 2016.

You’ll find press photos, live shots, album covers and behind-the-scenes glimpses into one of the most storied lives in all of music history. This gallery (embedded above) also chronicles one of the more impressive sunglasses and torn T-shirt collections we’ve ever seen. We hope you enjoy this year-by-year trip through Keith’s incredible life in rock ‘n’ roll.
