Keith Richards

Madison Square Garden

November 27, 1969


By Michael Friedman


Rock & Roll’s quintessential bad boy.  Friedman lived in a small town in Connecticut for the past 15 years and so has Keith, just around the corner.  His kids went to school in town, and he and Patti were involved in the same activities as Friedman's friends and family.  Friedman says he never heard a negative story or even a word about Keith misbehaving.  Keith played at the local pub from time to time, always was a gentleman and an all-around good guy...until Keith left town and well, we all know those stories.


I think Kris Kristofferson summed it up in his song The Pilgrim:


    He’s a poet, he’s a picker


    He’s a prophet, he’s a pusher


    He’s a pilgrim and a preacher, 

    and a problem when he’s stoned


    He’s a walkin’ contradiction, 

    partly truth and partly fiction, 


    Takin’ every wrong direction 

    on his lonely way back home


    From the rockin of the cradle 

    to the rollin’ of the hearse


    The goin’ up was worth the 

    comin’ down
