In a recent interview with the New York Daily News, THE ROLLING STONES guitarist Keith Richards has slammed the current rock scene, telling “it sounds like a dull thud to me. For most bands, getting the syncopation is beyond them. It’s endless thudding away, with no bounce, no lift, no syncopation.”
Richards was also critical towards heavy metal, telling that “”Millions are in love with METALLICA and BLACK SABBATH. I just thought they were great jokes.”
Richards‘s new solo album, “Crosseyed Heart”, will be released on September 18 via Virgin EMI/Universal Music.
