Keith Richards (born 18 December 1943) is an English musician, songwriter, and founding member of the rock band the Rolling Stones ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as the "10th greatest guitarist of all time." Richards was born in Kent, England. He first met Mick Jagger as his neighbor until 1954 when the family moved. Years later he met Jagger on the train and rekindled their friendship. They began singing in a small band together, "Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys." Richards has sung lead, or co-lead on most Rolling Stones songs. He is said to own over 3000 guitars. In addition to singing, Richards also produces records for other musicians. Richards's autobiography, Life, was released October 26, 2010.
