The Snake Tongue of Keith Richards.
Keith Richards has spent a significant amount of his recent promotional schedule discussing his ire for some other artists
See the gallery below.
David Bowie “It's all pose. It's all fucking posing. It's nothing to do with music. He knows it too.”
Elton John: “An old bitch… his writing is limited to songs about dead blondes.” Elton's response: "It would be awful to be like Keith Richards. He’s pathetic. It’s like a monkey with arthritis, trying to go on stage and look young. I have great respect for the Stones but they would have been better if they had thrown Keith out 15 years ago."
George Michael: "Shave and go home. He's a wimp in disguise."
Bob Dylan: “Bob's a nasty little bugger. I remember him saying to me, 'I could have written "Satisfaction", but you couldn't have written "Desolation Row"'. I said, 'well, you're right there, Bob.'”
Sex Pistols: "There's more to it than saying 'shit' on TV or learning to spit by practicing in the mirror." Sid Vicious' response: “I wouldn't piss on Keith Richards if he was on fire.”
Oasis: "These guys are just obnoxious. Grow up and then come back and see if you can hang."
Rap music in general: “Rap: so many words, so little said. What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there. All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it, and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.”
Bruce Springsteen:“If there was anything better around, he'd still be working the bars of New Jersey."
Guns N’ Roses: "I admire their guts. But too much posing. Their look; it's like there's one out of this band, one looks like Jimmy, one looks like Ronnie. Too much copycat, too much posing for me."
Metallica and Black Sabbath: “Millions are in love with Metallica and Black Sabbath. I just thought they were great jokes… I don't know where Metallica's inspiration comes from, but if it's from me, then I fucked up"
