Happy Birthday to Rolling Stones co-founder Keith Richards, who turns 77 today (December 18th)!!! Richards, a man who due to his previous penchant for hard street drugs wasn't expected to see 30 — let alone 50 — has often infamously topped numerous “Most Likely To Die Lists” over the years. Today also marks the 37th anniversary for Richards and wife Patti Hansen, who married in 1983 on the guitarist's 40th birthday — with Mick Jagger serving as best man.
It was announced earlier this week, the Rolling Stones' first decade will be the subject of a limited TV series for FX. The still-unnamed official series will be produced by the same team behind the hit show chronicling Britain's royal family, The Crown.
Out now is Keith Richards' deluxe reissue of his and the X-Pensive Winos' 1991 concert collection, Live From The Hollywood Palladium, which was recorded on December 15th, 1988. The limited edition box set and digital version includes three bonus tracks new to the set — the Stones' Tattoo You favorite, “Little T&A,” Richards' then-recent “You Don’t Move Me,” and the Lennon & McCartney-written early Stones single, “I Wanna Be Your Man.”
