Keith Richards & The X-Pensive Winos: Town and Country Club, London
David Sinclair, Rolling Stone, 4 February 1993
ON THE EVE of his forty-ninth birthday, the eternally delinquent Keith Richards was back in his hometown, at an 1800-capacity club, doing what he loves most. Striding onstage punctually at 9:00 p.m., carrying a battered blond Telecaster and a hefty burden of legend on his skinny shoulders, he kicked straight into the chiming intro of 'Take It So Hard', a classic concoction of open-tuned suspended sevenths sawing across a drumbeat hard enough to fell a tree.
