  1. Is this about Keith Richard’s stupid comment about how everyone got it wrong about The Grateful Dead – and that they were a boring group? Never mind that there is a Keith Richard documentary and album to sell – always pays to get a bit more publicity.

    It just makes me wonder how many albums of The Grateful Dead he has actually bothered to listen to – the majority not being forty minute jams. [Ok, live they could extend things slightly].

    All this coming from a man who has played the intro to Johnny B Good wrong for fifty years and couldn’t get it right even with Chuck Berry showing him how to do it correctly [about fifteen times] – now that was a good documentary.


  2. Afraid I have to agree with Keith Richards on this. I reckon their version of “Smokestack Lightning” is terribly boring for example. Having said that I’d better be careful as they are one of my wife’s favourite bands of all time. Never seen anyone play the intro to Johnny B Good as well as Chuck Berry. Even Hendrix.
