Keith Richards Accepts

Yeah, my turn. A few disconnected thoughts, right. I'd like to say thank you to Leo Fender, for making the goddamn things we've gotta play, right. Those guitars, man, to me, being the guitar player, are very important - I'd like to say thank you, Leo. I'd like to say thank you, Mick, I'd like to say... and Mick, and Ron, Ahmet especially, for putting up with us sixteen years. And also, of course - although Pete's beat me to the punch here - Ian Stuart, because I still feel like I'm working for him - it's his band, I work for him, you know? I'd like to thank you all.
