Ya it is good he doesn’t do iPhone otherwise his hands would cramp up. Can’t read the darn things anyway.
Go Keef.
He would have a bitch of a time navigating the screens with those nodules in his fingertips.

do you think you are funny, keefriff99???
if you think you are, i wish you those fingers
I was NOT making a joke. I don't think he would find using an iPhone easy with the condition his fingers are in.

Love it.. thanks for posting.

Reminds me of the interview with Ronnie and Charlie where he mockingly said "Oh, Keith wrote that did he??" re a text or social media post. Can't recall exactly and too lazy to look up.. but one of Charlie's funnier lines.

Keith's fingers are the price he has paid for his career/job. He's been compensated quite handsomely and has access to the finest health-care, drugs, therapy etc. that money can buy....so, I don't feel bad for him in the slightest

Not necessarily. There are plenty of guitarists his age whose fingers are still relatively supple and aren't deformed (Clapton, Townshend, Gilmour, etc.).

He just had the bad luck to have that particular health condition...and I do feel bad for him because his fingers are his livelihood. He obviously can still play but it's a cruel trick to have your body betray you in that way.

Keith no longer wears the skull ring due to the inflamed and gnarled arthritic fingers. And while he still can play, clearly the arthritis has been an increasing hindrance to how and what he plays.
I have very minor arthritis in my wrist due to a fracture from skateboarding when I was younger - it only occasionally becomes painful when I lift too much stuff and/or in very cold weather and then I'll wear a wrist brace.
Those things tend to catch up with you as you grow older, but in no way is it as bad as Keith's. And while I still enjoy playing guitar, it's definitely not as easy as it used to be...

Hairball do you know for a fact that is why Keith took off the skull ring?
Your reason is a guess.
For all we know, he donated it to the Smithsonian.
There are ways and means health wise to find solutions/live with me alternatives.
More gold rings on Keith!

For sure...I'm just saying that, theoretically, his condition could have been so severe that it rendered him unable to play at all. He (and we as fans) are lucky that he can still play as well as he can given the state of his fingers.

No one knows how his fingers feel except for him. Someone here mentioned that the Heberden's nodes that Keith has can eventually be painless, but the loss of motion is significant.

Plus, we don't know how much of his deteriorated playing is due to his fingers, and how much is due to loss of reflexes, response time, mental acuity due to a lifetime of substance abuse.

We all love Keith. He's still capable of being incredibly witty and sharp in interviews, but all you have to do is watch and listen to him to know his lifestyle has taken a toll.

Not nearly as severe as others (Ozzy), but still. Just compare him to Mick, who has taken his health seriously for several decades. The difference is stark, and no accident.

Yes keefriffhard, Keith's far from what he used to be for a variety of reasons, but glad he's still here and doing what he loves.
At 75 yr's old and surviving everything he's been through (alcohol and drugs, head injury, arthritis, etc)...hats off to him, and long live Keith!

Not a guess - a member here had mentioned it after talking to Keith's guitar tech during the tour.

Keith has stated a few times that his fingers don't hurt him any more, (Heberden’s Nodes) they probably hurt like hell when arthritis initially struck and they began to form, so basically they just get in the way of things these days, things like rings and fret boards, strings etc.
Keith's fingers obviously move OK or he would have had them operated on and he wouldn't be able to tour.
So he has been fortunate considering.
I think his fingers look better recently, maybe he has had something done, hence he plays things like SFTD so much better, that and being sober winking smiley

“Rolling Stones Riffmaster and closet polymath Keith Richards...”
Mojo

From Polymath Society International:
. A polymath is not necessarily a brain. In fact, a polymath usually does not think of his or herself as being particularly smart, only curious.
The polymath strives to preserve consciousness. It is the mind in control of emotions, but also the genuine integration of feelings and sensibilities with thought, so the polymath is also a poet, a composer, an artist, or a novelist perhaps.

I feel this. But what needs to happen now is another great mini tour and a good new album. Doesn't have to be great just a good album with 1/2 standout tracks.
Then a farewell concert in my garden in Barnet, UK.

MUST be a great album...just OK or half-good won't do it this time. Not for the last one. But I understand how even a couple of solid tracks would be acceptable to a lot of fans after this LOOOOOOOONG time of waiting. Ultimately you may be right anyhow...

Too much nostalgia for me.

Well that's not the editors' fault if the truly interesting pop/rock music blossomed between (roughly) 1965 and 1980.
That's the sad irony we live in : there's never been as many bands as there are today but there's very little good new music to grab. Whereas it was the opposite in the 60's/70's 'fewer bands better music).

Ridiculously untrue.

Ridiculous comment, Bastion, if you're into rock -- if hip hop is your thing, well then: to each his own...

Different Front Cover's ?. My copy arrived on Friday. The same photo as posted in the initial post but no other text or images on the cover other than 'Mojo the music magazine'. A thing of beauty that I will probably frame.
