 Rock and roll legend Keith Richards, iconic guitarist of ‘The Rolling Stones’, turns 80 this week, marking a milestone in his legendary career. Richards, known for his gritty guitar riffs and timeless hits, has been a driving force in shaping the sound of rock music.

“I feel perfectly fine, I mean, I could jump on stage now and do the show”, expressed the guitarist who was born in Dartford on the 18th of December 1943.

Richards recently stated in an interview that he composed "Angie" and "Wild Horses" for his kids. In the first composition I told them that I had to leave home and continue on tour with the Rolling Stones so 'wild horses wouldn't drag me away”. In contrast, 'Angie' was composed in 1972 just for her new-born daughter Angela.

“Some things get better with age. Like me”

Among the several roles this particular Rolling Stones member has had, Keith Richards' life has been filled with celebrity, quirks, addictions, women, and sports automobiles. Richards wed Patti Hansen in 1983 when he was forty years old. The two of them had six children together, and Richards is now the grandfather of Ella, his gorgeous granddaughter.

The band (Rolling Stones) has been led by him and Mick Jagger since its inception in 1962. They have radiated rock & roll on stage and have been like soulmates who were meant to be together. The renowned guitarist for The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, is still standing today, defying the passing of time. As a founding member, Richards' gritty guitar riffs and rebellious spirit have played a significant role in creating the band's lasting legacy. Richards's decades-long career has left him with an immense impact on rock music, making him a living legend and The Rolling Stones global idols.

As he celebrates eight decades of life, fans around the world reflect on his enduring influence and contributions to the music industry. Richards' resilience, enduring stage presence, and rebellious spirit continue to inspire generations of musicians. Happy 80th, Keith Richards, a true rock and roll icon!
