The link above is really cool. Cut and paste the link and it will take you to a page for Keith Richards’ LIFE audio book. Click on the SAMPLE link below Keith's pic and you'll hear Johnny Depp, using his Pirates of the Caribbean voice (he based his interpretation of the role on Keith), reading about Jim Dickinson's part in one of Keith's adventures. Amazing! Who'da thunk that would ever happen? Certainly not Jim. It’s not Biblical, but I hope he somehow knows about it up in Heaven while he's playing those celestial tunes. World boogie is coming!

but win or lose, as Luther said, "It's enough to know the members
of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Science (NARAS)
