    Keith is 66? He has to live another 600 and play "Sympathy for the Devil" at his 666th birthday party!

    Satanic humor aside, I'm glad Keith is still with us--his survival is legendary and inspiring. A great musician and an original spirit. An enduring icon! I hope the Stones tour in 2010.

    I have so many favorite songs--the Stones are the third most played band on my iPod and I own most of their albums. Rather than run through the mega-hits, I will name a couple gems which deserve more recognition:

    "Break the Spell"

    "Gomper" (No one ever mentions this song, but it's so gorgeous and unique--I could listen to it 24/7)

    "Had It with You"

    "Luxury"

    "Memory Motel"

    "This Place Is Empty"

    "Through the Lonely Nights"

    "Tops"

    "Walking the Dog"

    "Winter"

    I like Gimme Shelter. Keith Richards intro is classic, and Charlie Watts' timing on the cymbal crashes throughout are perfectly placed!

    Happy Birthday to a great guitarist and rock legend!

    Not my favorite, but Keith sings it and apropos to growing older.

    Happy Friday Punch.

    Man, that dude is a survivor. I think a bit of bonus birthday congratulations should be awarded to the Austrian children whose blood flows through his veins. (insert smile face) I'm not a giant Stones guy for my personal tastes, but Keith Richards is pretty darn awesome, and they are one of those bands that you just have to respect. Amazing what they've/he has accomplished.

    19th Nervous Breakdown is my favorite stones tune.
