Rolling Stones carry on touring because we ‘still think we’re getting better’, guitar legend tells Kirsty Young
The ultimate rocker – the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards – puts his success in the music business down to his mother, Doris, and her impeccable taste. She was always able to find the right sounds to listen to on the radio.
“She had unerring aim on the dial,” he tells presenter Kirsty Young on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs today. It might sound an unlikely start for a rock’n’roll rebel like Richards, 71, but then he was a boy scout and choir boy.
