Keith Richards turns 75 on Tuesday (Dec. 18) and in celebration, the rocker visited his daughter Theodora's SiriusXM show, Off the Cuff.

The one-hour program, hosted by Theodora, features her favorite tracks discussions with celebrity guests about the discovery of music and early influences.

In her interview with her father, the two joke about Richards' aversion to musicals. "I was at a very early age dragged to see loads of people clumping around the screen and suddenly bursting into song," he joked. "I was not developed enough to appreciate it"

"I’m not saying—there’s some great songs out of musicals but I cannot watch them," he continued, noting that his mother had excellent music taste beyond the movies he hated. He named Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong among some of his mom's favorites. 

When Theodora thanks her father for helping her discover what she loves to do, Richards laughed as he replied, "Listen, girl, I’m just glad you got a job."

The full episode of Off the Cuff airs Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. EST on SiriusXM’s Spectrum channel 28, and will then be available on SiriusXM On Demand. Listen to a few clips below in the meantime.
