I've seen Chuck Berry once, in 2009. He played a 1 hour and 15 minute show, which I've heard is quite long for him. The venue held about 1000 people. Objectively it was one of the sloppiest shows I've ever been to. But in all honesty the sheer joy he showed playing with his daughter and son made sure I left the venue completely happy and satisfied. He was great with the fans too, signed a girl's guitar, pulled people onto the stage, sat down afterwards to sign stuff and greet people. Fantastic night.... but technically shit. ;) 

To be fair though, in the tradition of rock n roll and blues, a lot of em were technically shit, not that they couldnt do it pitch perfect, the record shows admirably that they could but those guys used to turn up pissed and high and play for people who were pissed and high and everybody had a gay ol' time, its a loose sort of music, rock n roll.  Though Chuck Berry was very very very on point for most of his career so hes probably a bad example.  They tend to minimise their work as they get older, sort of like a boxing vet, they know how to get the most out of little, Keith is very much like this lately and more power to him i say.

The Stones grew up idolizing Jimmy Reed for crying out loud, he used to play so pissed he could hardly stand :lol:

Mick's tracksuit!!

Its sort of what they are at the heart of it, aren't they?  Then again I've heard Keith say in interviews, regarding his solo work, that he would never do a solo blues album simply because he can't see any reason for it and there are people out there who can do it a lot better than he so that tells me that the ol' wock n woll means a lot to him and thats not really music to be played sitting on your arse.

The title track on Crosseyed Heart is all the reason the world needs for a Keith Richards blues album.

I know, I was suprised he said that.  I'd like it all accoustic too.

Absolutely. The blues usually works even better for older artists. It adds a certain level of credibility and experience and all. There's a lot of good young blues guys out there, but it just works better stripped down to an acoustic guitar and an old weathered voice. Keith of all people should know that.

The little clips of him out there picking out blues on the accoustic are fuckin' beautiful, i dunno what he's talking about, the mad old cunt, he sounds great at it.
