The Rolling Stones guitarist talks about his incredible life and times.

It's "all back to Keith's" as the legendary Rolling Stone talks about his incredible life and times, in the relaxed surroundings of his Connecticut living room. First broadcast in late 2010 and repeated as part of as part of 6 Music Celebrates 50 Years of The Rolling Stones.

We've seen plenty of Keith, the rock 'n' roll maverick, and the legendary Rolling Stone commanded even more headlines than usual following the publication of his autobiography.

Sexton has interviewed Richards, and his fellow Stones, on countless occasions over the past 15 years and this is reflected in the candid and often amusing nature of the exchange. Keith vividly describes controversial moments, memorable encounters, guitar heroes and proud achievements.

Richards describes his house and surroundings as he sits in front of a portrait of himself, revealing that it was created and then presented to him by a close, and very famous, friend. He discusses his devotion to the guitar, including the surprising confession: "I'm not a lead guitar player, basically, and never wanted to be". He also talks about his all-time favourite players: "I wanted to meet Scottty Moore more than I wanted to meet Elvis Presley."

The wide-ranging chat also covers the first record Keith ever bought, comic escapades on the road, his adulation of icons from Robert Johnson to Chuck Berry, how the Stones continue to extend the frontiers as rock's ultimate survivors, and much more besides - including his thoughts on Mick Jagger, his creative partner of nearly half a century.

The programmes are packed with colourful stories of an unparalleled life and illustrated with some of the best music of the past 50 years, made both by Keith and some of his own idols.
