I can't believe we missed Keith Richards' birthday yesterday! The old geezer rhythm guitar player for the Stones is 64, which is about 164 of anyone else's years. Insert your own joke here about Keith's drug-fueled longevity. To celebrate, let's show an "unreleased" clip of Keith and the Rolling Stones performing on the 1972 tour, just after the release of Exile on Main Street, arguably one of the greatest rock records of all time. Keith plays with the best Stones' line-up ever. A very young and brilliant Mick Taylor plays lead guitar over a rock solid rhythm section of Bill Wyman on bass, and Charlie Watts on drums. The horns are played by Bobby Keys and Jim Horn. Oh, and the singer is Mick Jagger. 1972 tour, yeah. This is the Stones at their best.
