Rolling Stone interviewed Keith Richards about the new leg of The Rolling Stones' No Filter stadium tour. With a career spanning more than 50 years, the legendary guitarist is still amazed at the band’s longevity.
When asked how Charlie Watts, 77, is still able to drum, Richards simply replied, “That is just Charlie. That’s what’s so amazing about the man. It’s my privilege to play with Charlie Watts.”
This is their first U.S. tour since the Zip Code tour in 2015. The Rolling Stones first toured the U.S. in 1964 and traveled around in a station wagon. “America was a very different place in the middle '60s,” he told Rolling Stone. “Quite honestly, I can’t believe I’ve been around this long, man. I’ve watched this country grow up.”
