It's been 40 years since Paint It Black hit the airwaves, on AM radio, back in 1966. That was my introduction to the band. I've seen them once and I think there were more police than ticketholders at that concert (early 70's). As concerts go it was not a good one. Sure, it was the Stones, and it was live, but the pigs were everywhere, man. I don't think we allowed to even smoke cigarettes at that show - at least not in the seats, perhaps on the mezzanine. I would like to see them again. Live on Keith!

I was priviledged enough to hear most one of their shows, even though I lived almost two miles from the outdoor venue. It wasn't a clear, distinct sound, but it was enough to know what was being played.

I guess because for years he has taken few drugs if any and I doubt he even did so to the extent the PR spin and Media made out in the 70's.

At 30 he clearly had a problem but had it been really as bad as claimed how could he have kept, or even been allowed by the management, to keep performing.

The biggest myth about him, he now claims, is probably that he was constantly endangering himself with drugs. In his own words "Actually, I would take drugs quite responsibly," During his 30's his body could cope but I guess he knows it wouldn't be able to today.

>How Is Keith Richards Still Alive

A strong desire to live would be my guess?

I'm sure he has done more than his fair share of drugs, achohol, tabacco and all other things claimed to be "harmful".......but, maybe a desire to live keeps any ill-effects at arms length :)

He is of course a "Brit", and we don't die easily as a nation :)

Probably genetic ;~)Some people thrive on abuse. My grandfather smoked two to three packs of cigarettes everyday, even though he only had one lung since 1917 ( Gas attack WW1)and always had stiff drink or four when ever he visited us. He died at 86 of pnuemonia, the doctors said he would have survived if he'd still had both lungs.

Not to mention all the blood transfusions he had in Switzerland so he wouldn't have withdrawals.
