Happy Birthday, Keith Richards

His Keefness is 65 today. This is him with the X-Pensive Winos in (probably) 1988, performing “How I Wish” and “As Wicked as It Seems” from his excellent solo album Talk is Cheap. Sadly there is no clip available of his great Christmas song from 1978, Chuck Berry’s “Run Rudolph Run” but you can get it on iTunes. Best Christmas record ever.

Bear in mind while you watch this that he was 45. And aren’t those Amy Winehouse’s eyes?

“Run Rudolph Run” is also available legally on eMusic, and much cheaper than iTunes at US40c if you are on the standard plan. Just to prove that it is real, here is the cover of the original single:
