Rolling Stones Fans – Keith Richards In Conversation With Anthony DeCurtis

 

New York, NY – A lucky few New Yorkers got to see legendary Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards in conversation with music writer Anthony DeCurtis at the New York Public Library this fall.  Tickets to the event sold out in a record 42 seconds, leaving thousands of fans in the cold and reminding them that you can’t always get what you want.  That’s why public radio station WFUV is making sure you get what you need, bringing the interview to all New Yorkers and Stones fans the world over with a special broadcast on Thursday, December 16th at 9:00 PM EST, two days before Richards’ 67th birthday. 
 
The recorded interview, part of the LIVE From The NYPL programming series, has a candid Richards discussing his feelings about everything from rock & roll (“turned the world from black and white into technicolor”) to The Beatles (“they beat us to the punch”) to women (“I love them dearly”) and recounting tales from his recently released autobiography, Life.   The interview will air on WFUV 90.7 FM in New York City and at www.wfuv.org worldwide.
 
Interviewer Anthony DeCurtis, who reviews new CD releases regularly on FUV Music Morning with Claudia Marshall, has written frequently about both Richards and the Rolling Stones in the course of his thirty-year career as a music journalist, most notably for Rolling Stone magazine, where he is a contributing editor.
