Keith gets B'day honor

Too good to bury in the birthday thread..cool smiley


Keith Richards gets cockroach named after him for 77th birthday


"A museum in Keith Richards’ home state gave him an unusual birthday present: a creepy-crawly cockroach.
In honor of his 77th birthday on December 18, the Children’s Museum in West Hartford, Connecticut, named a Madagascar hissing cockroach “Keith” to commemorate the Rolling Stones rocker’s special day.

Keith the Cockroach even got his own insect-sized guitar for his enclosure, thanks to Denver classic rock station 103.5 The Fox, which sponsored the adoption.
The cockroach will permanently reside in an enclosure at the museum, which is located just 60 miles north of Richards’ home in Weston, and it will be cared for by staff at the museum, noting that “all of his rider demands will be met.”

“It is said the only two things to survive a nuclear war would be cockroaches and Keith Richards,” the museum wrote in a press release. “Chances are the real Keith will outlive the newly named, oval-shaped invertebrate whose life span is two to five years.”

The museum said it was inspired to name the nightcrawler after Richards, who himself has notoriously cheated death on several occasions, including when he fell out of a coconut tree in 2006, and in 1978, when someone laced his dope with strychnine, which landed him in a coma.
Stones fans not creeped out by insects can visit Keith the Cockroach by getting tickets on the website of the Children’s Museum in West Hartford. Admission is $8 for both adults and children.

It is stories like this that warm me heart. Hopefully, Mister Richards can do a day trip and meet his name sake.

Kind of totally insulting. Like all those jokes about Keith isn't dead yet. One day people are going to feel really bad about that, or at least I hope they will.

Ride on Keef!

Keith Richards reveals his 10 all-time favorite Rolling Stones riffs and the stories behind them

Happy Birthday Keef! (& thanks for the music)


Re: the Madagascar Roach, to us it's insulting, but I can't imagine it phases him. He's Captain Indestructible, so he'd probably laugh it off & have a clever quip to boot.


Just for fun...

Yes, I've never heard of that either. Can someone explain? Any truth to it? Or just another unverified part of the legend?
