Keith Richards does not pray to Jesus

Stones guitarist is new frontman for Louis Vuitton
Tue Mar 4, 1:50 PM ET
PARIS (AFP) - Rolling Stones guitarist and rock-and-roll bad boy Keith Richards is to become the new public face of Louis Vuitton, the French luxury fashion house said on Tuesday.

For his first ever ad campaign, the 64-year-old Richards -- who has a rocky history of drug use -- is seen cradling his guitar on a hotel-room bed, the lights part obscured by skull-print black drapes.

"Some journeys cannot be put into words. New York. 3 am. Blues in C," runs the slogal of the ad, shot by US photographer Annie Leibovitz and due to appear in the magazine press next month.

Richards plans to donate the fee for the ad to the Climate Project, launched by Nobel-winning former US vice-president Al Gore and backed by Louis Vuitton.

Famous faces stars to have represented Vuitton in the past include former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev, French screen icon Catherine Deneuve, and US actresses Scarlett Johansson and Uma Thurman.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama

A. In a home for the mentaly insane or
B. Dead or
C. In rehab or
D. Selling drugs, hardly the sort of guy you would want as an image for a company like this

^^^^I disagree on "D" about the image, I bet he is just the kind of guy that the crowd that would buy those products would think of as cool. He wasn't bad in that little acting dittie he did in Pirates of the Carribean 3

Keith Richards is Rock & Roll personified, the real deal, and a very cool guy. When tired at a party, he is still liable to just roll up in the corner of a room for a snooze. Loves classical music, and is a huge John Coltrain fan. That he is still alive is a miracle. The drinking and chain smoking is mostly for public consumption. The cigarette is thrown away after a few puffs. Like many touring musicians, who got tired of Restaurant food, he is a very good cook.
As for dealing drugs, he is worth a few hundred million and could buy a pharma company if he wanted to. My good friend Terry Reid and Keith Richards have been friends ever since a 15 year old Terry opened for the Stones on their first US tour in 86.
I got to meet him a few times through Terry. Here are Keith, Terry, and Waddy, jamming in tiny LA bar.
