Keith Richards has taught the rock world an important lesson: make fun of your lead singer's little lead singer and you'll be on the outside looking in at future celebratory gatherings. The Rolling Stones' guitarist did that and called Mick Jagger "unbearable" in his book 'Life,' and now Jagger is seemingly retaliating by not letting Richards come to the band's 50th anniversary celebration.
That Keith Richards is a generous chap. The Rolling Stones guitarist came to the assistance of Angel Radio, a classic radio station on the Isle of Wight, which is an island located in the English channel. The station's equipment was struck by lightning, which hindered its operations, so Richards opened his wallet and donated £3,000, which translates to almost $5000 in American currency.
Keith Richards has lead a 'Life' well lived. He's already cemented his place as one of the most revered guitarists in rock history thanks to his position in the Rolling Stones. Now the axe slinger can consider himself a truly successful author, as his autobiography has sold over one million copies since its release. That's not shocking, since Richards has plenty of sordid, rock 'n' roll stories and scintillating tales in his arsenal, which fans no doubt wanted to read about.
A smile must have crossed the mug of Rolling Stones' guitarist Keith Richards when the long-running tabloid News of the World was shuttered by media mogul Rupert Murdoch on Sunday amid the credibility-destroying phone hacking scandal and a well-documented history of predatory journalistic tactics.
