Keith Richards by Richard E. Aaron

Keith Richards. This shot is from the Keith Richards Barbarian tour in between the Rolling Stones tour Keith would go on tour with Ron Wood and his friends and they called themselves the Barbarians. I was one of the photographers hired to do the tour and this is one of the shots, this is one of my favourite shots in my files, I think it’s because its got a lot of feeling you can look at the photograph and you can hear the music, you can hear the blues. If I shot this with a flash it would not be the same feeling it would be all washed out, where as the stage lighting gave that artistic feeling of the shot, and I think this is one of the best shots where Keith looks so healthy.
