Keith - UNCUT Magazine, January 2024

IN ‘The Titanic Sails At Dawn’, his 1976 polemic for the NME, Mick Farren harangued the previous decade’s rock’n’roll trailblazers who by now, he believed, had become part of the very establishment they had once rebelled against. “Did we ever expect to see The Rolling Stones on News At Ten,” railed Farren, “just like they were at the Badminton Horse Trials or the Chelsea Flower Show?”

The Stones, of course, have weathered such barbs with ease down the decades. Increasingly, it seems as they push ever onwards, they have become their own establishment – a kind of self-sufficient republic with its own rules, regulations and a unique set of operating systems. Releasing new music in their seventh decade, and with North American tour dates for 2024, they continue to break fresh ground with remarkable ease, redefining our ideas and expectations of what a band should be. Milestones continue to be reached: Mick Jagger turned 80 in July – and now, astonishingly, Keith Richards joins him later this month.

Our cover story, then, is a celebration of both Keith’s longevity and his irrepressible vitality as he reaches this landmark birthday. There are wonderful, warm and funny stories from old friends and collaborators as well as bandmates past and present. Stand by for plenty of piratical yarns; but also moments of surprising tenderness and warmth. Who knew Keith Richards – the old devil himself – could be so generous to the Boy Scouts during Bob-a-job week…?

The whole shabang opens with an exclusive introduction from Ron Wood while none other than Tom Waits has written us a brilliant new poem to honour this auspicious occasion.

What else is there to say? I’ll leave it up to Uncut’s newest contributor, then. As Waits’ writes in “Burnt Toast For Keith”…

“Happy Birthday KEITH the big 80 is here,

slap it in the face

and wake it up…”

I buy very few music magazines these days (going back 10 years or so) but this one I will hopefully find.

Sounds about right there DandelionPowderman.

Hoping for an in depth interview with Sir Keef sometime soon to hail his 80 years.
Maybe even a survival guide for us mere mortals ticking off the years rather too quickly.

I haven't bought a music magazine in years, after religiously reading the likes of the NME, Q, and MOJO for several years. Occasionally, like when stranded at a railway station, I'll flick through one at a newsagent, like WH Smiths. What I notice at these infrequent moments is just how flimsy they all are now. There's far fewer pages, and the text is no smaller. MOJO and Q were really good value for money. Not today, seemingly.

So...Keith at 73!

I was going to buy the Keith cover interview Guitar Player, but it was a tenner in WH Smiths in UK. So I just flicked it at the rack instead.
Specialist print mags still have a readership and a place, but I do wonder how long they will go on, mags like Uncut and Mojo. No new generation. is coming through to replace the merry go round of 60s-70s-80s (and 90s as a push) cover stars - and the number of people who want to read about them will be declining steeply over the next decade or so. Or maybe they will be the niche mags like the blues, jazz, rock n roll, or soul ones, and of course rRecord Collector - coollectibility never dies, after all!

Yep, it's a shame. My Q's, Mojo's and Uncut's from the 90's and early 2000's are so thick I still find sections in them I still haven't read!
+ They cost more nowadays, the Blues CD one got with last month's Mojo looked tasty along with the Stones article but I just couldn't afford it.

Thank you for posting that, Irix.
I just read the whole thing and now feel bad, so I will go out and buy the magazine this weekend lol!

What a national treasure that guy is (Keith, not Irix - though I'm sure you come close).

OT but since they have Kramer’s phone number they should ask him about the Mocambo nights and their recordings...

Finally read everything, great stuff in there! Not surprised by Bernard's comment that Keith's got an elephant's brain and remembers everything! Waddy more or less implies the same I think, or was the SFM just a coincidence?
