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.
