No Surprises From Keef...Thankfully
If you hadn't heard by now, Keith Richards has a new record coming in September. The single, "Trouble," is above.
I like it a lot and I think that's interesting.
It has been over 20 years since Keef's last solo record "Main Offender," and this song sounds not only like something off that record, but also like something that could have fit perfectly on "Some Girls" or "Tattoo You," records that are over 30 years old. Nothing ever changes with Keith.
I love that and still I question why I love it.
I think the obvious answer is I don't like change. Do I really want to hear a Keith Richards electronica album? Does anyone? Still a very small part of me is thinking, even as I play some air guitar along with Keef's killer riffing, "Man, this sounds like everything else."
I can't wait for this record.
