Keith Richards Talks Rockstar Life With The Stones In REELZ Doc: Watch


It takes a lot of skill to match up with Mick Jagger‘s iconic vocals and on-stage energy, but if there’s one who has managed to complement his charisma, it has to be Keith Richards, who — typically seen with a cigarette between his lips and a hairband pulling back his shaggy ‘do — played some unforgettable riffs for one of the greatest rock bands of all time, The Rolling .

In the new documentary : You Can’t Rock Me, premiering Friday, December 18 (the musician’s 77th birthday), Richards himself spills all on his and career.

Featuring interviews with music critic Barney Hoskyns, music academic Dr. Jennifer Otter Bickerdike and the one and only Richards, the rocker will chart his own rise to superstardom with The Rolling Stones.

Richards has been with the band since their beginnings and has taken part in crafting one hit after another, including “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Satisfaction,” “Ruby Tuesday” and “Start Me Up,” among others.

Richards has been described as “the heart and the soul” of The Rolling Stones, helping cement the group in the history books. But, like most rockstars, he also fell victim to temptation. Throughout his career, he toyed with booze and drugs, and has been involved in countless legal troubles.

Most of all, he wasn’t afraid to flaunt his unique style. “He always had a little shaggier hair, but the hair gets shaggier and longer,” Dr. Bickerdike says in the upcoming REELZ , adding that fans could see “glam-rock elements” incorporated into Richards’ style, including scarves, vests, fringe, velvet and other luxurious materials.

According to REELZ, “Keith continues to create phenomenal rock and roll songs that are filled with character. But where did he and the Stones all begin and how did he develop his ‘Aristocratic Tramp Style?’ Follow the journey of the infamous Rock ’N’ Roll legend.”
