Keith Richards

As one half of the fabled Glimmer Twins, Keith Richards doesn’t make many solo albums. Still, it could be argued that one of them helped save the Rolling Stones. His gold-selling ‘Talk is Cheap’ LP arrived in 1988 as the Stones were at a low ebb, and sparked Richards’ first-ever solo tour. Not long after, Richards reunited with a suitably impressed Mick Jagger, though a second Richards project followed in 1990. Richards also moonlighted with Rolling Stones bandmate Ron Wood as a member of an all-star late-’70s group called the New Barbarians, and on some of Wood’s albums. More recently, Richards has taken up acting as part of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie franchise. A 1978 solo version of ‘Run Rudolph Run’ remains a holiday staple on classic-rock radio stations.
