Keith Richards Lead Vocals Playlist



When the mercury climbs above ninety-five strange notions enter the mind. Yesterday in a fever I was compelled to assemble a playlist of all the Rolling Stones songs with Keith Richards lead vocals. Research proceeded slowly until I finally crafted the magic search spell. I'm indebted to one Jan Wolfer from a German Rolling Stones message board for providing an annotated, chronological list of Sir Keef's lead vocal contributions. [looks that list is since been toasted. ed.]

Song quality pretty closely parallels the rise and slow gradual decline of the Rolling Stones recorded output. See how deep into the list you can make it!

Gee-whiz thought for the day: This August the Rolling Stones will play two highly publicized shows at Fenway Park. My non-guaranteed research shows the band first played in Boston at the Gardens in November 1965, nearly forty years ago. In the summer of 1966 they played the Manning Bowl in lovely Lynn, MA (thanks to frayed.org for the tour dates).
