Will Keith Richards become rock and roll’s B.B. King?

I pose this question while looking at pictures of Keef rocking out at a surprise gig with Terry Reid at The Joint in LA recently. As long as that man is breathing I don’t doubt for a minute the sincerity of the Rolling Stones because Keith Richards still, to this day plays music because he wants to, not because some accountant tells him he has to. He will play anywhere with almost anybody just for the joy of playing music. Grumble all you want about the money grubbing Rolling Stones (and I am not saying that sometimes the commercial aspects of that operation overtake the artistic ones), Keith Richards will most probably die onstage playing the music that he loves at some ripe old age oblivious to everything around him but family, friends and music. A true rock and roller.
