Song Of The Day: Keith Richards – “Take It So Hard” (1988)

Happy Birthday to Keith Richards, the son and holy spirit of Rock & Roll, who turns 74 today. He is not only one of the most important figures in Rock history, he is also living proof that an extreme Rock & Roll lifestyle isn’t necessarily bad for your health. Borrowing largely from Chuck Berry, Richards revolutionized Rock rhythm guitar, showing how it’s used not only for metronomic chording but also for texture, color and nuance. But it’s largely a one-man revolution, because nobody on the planet can play guitar quite like Keef. Here’s to seeing this amazing man weaving his magic when he’s 100.
