Keith Richards, the guitarist for the Rolling Stones, recently gave an interview to Telegraph where he discussed several musical styles. The rock star admitted that he had never been a fan of rock and rap music while discussing his career, the status of music, and his band’s comeback album “Hackney Diamonds.” Regarding rap music, he asserted that he could enjoy one of its elements without leaving the house by saying the following: “I don’t really appreciate hearing people shouting at me and calling it rap music. I don’t have to leave my house to have plenty of that. The guitarist continued by criticizing mainstream music for being “cheap and easy,” saying: “I don’t want to go into a pop music rant. It’s been garbage forever.
That is, after all, the whole point. Because they try to make it as simple and inexpensive as possible, it always sounds the same and has very little personality. Then he explained what genuine music means to him: “I enjoy listening to music created by musicians. To put it another way, I don’t enjoy listening to the ubiquitous, synthetic plastic Muzak that is now standard in elevators. The musician appears to enjoy blues, jazz, and classical music when it comes to his musical tastes. The Rolling Stones will soon release “Hackney Diamonds,” their first album in 18 years and their first without the late drummer Charlie Watts. On October 20, the album will be released. The band disclosed that they had already begun production on a new album even though it hasn’t yet been released. You may hear the album’s song ‘Angry’ below.
