Keith Richards

Under Review DVD

Review by Gary Hill

I get a lot of documentary/biographies. I tend to look at them rather skeptically anymore. In all honesty, particularly with an artist as well known as Keith Richards, what can be said that hasn’t already been talked about a hundred times or more? For that reason, biographies that don’t include a lot of authorized interviews tend to be very similar to one another. This series is an exception to that rule, though. While there is a certain amount of that, I think that what sets this above a lot of similar products is the deep analysis of the musical stylings and influences with samples and examples. This, along with a better than average biography, gives us a DVD that will certainly be of interest to any Stones fans, but also anyone who really wants a glimpse into the roots of a legendary guitarist.
