Happy Birthday Keith!

Born December 18, 1943 in England, Keith Richards is now 76 years…young, so it would seem. After smoking, drinking and living the life of a rock star for many years, he still shows no signs of slowing down. One of my favorite Rolling Stones songs is “Gimme Shelter”, and I came across this video…”A GREAT NIGHT IN HARLEM” Live at the Apollo Theater, October 22, 2015. It was a night honoring Merry Clayton, the amazing vocalist who was the original background singer in Gimme Shelter. Mary was in a terrible car crash in 2014, and lost both of her legs, so she watched this tribute from her home. But the vocalists in this rendition of Gimme Shelter sure did her justice. And of course, there’s the amazing guitar work of Keith Richards himself! Happy Birthday Keith, and ROCK ON! ~ Ron O’
