Yes, I’m as surprised as you are. Maybe he is too.

Early in the blog, on the significant birthdays of musicians, I would do this meme, answering questions based on the songs of the artist. Later, I started picking my favorite songs by the person, or group, but since I did that for the Rolling Stones only five months ago – around Mick Jagger’s birthday – thought I’d regress a bit.

  1. Did you see my drawing, “I Can’t Believe Keith Richards is Still Alive?”

    Ha ha ha. Saw him in the Scorsese Stones documentary and have to say, he is one hell of a guitarist. And I love that he gave Mick attitude for accepting an award from the Queen. He’s the true rebel. Mick is just a decorated pensioner with pants way too tight. Amy
