Keith Richards / X-Pensive Winos Live

KEEF 1_opt.jpg

In the service of Keef, you leave space and you hang on the root!

Which is just what Charley Drayton did on this killer live slab which captures the ragged glory of Richards on a busman’s holiday.

An accomplished drummer, Drayton lays in the pocket as X-Pensive Winos Waddy Wachtel, Ivan Neville, Bobby Keys, Steve Jordan, Sarah Dash and their bandleader rip the joint (Hollywood Palladium) with tunes from Talk Is Cheap (1988) along with choice Stones nuggets.
