KEITH RICHARDS UNDER THE RAIN

“I love studios, even when they’re empty,” says Keith Richards, speaking through a haze of smoke as he sits on a recording-studio couch in downtown New York. He’s quiet for a while; there’s nothing but a faint electronic noise. “There’s that little hum. Silence is your canvas. You look out there and you think, ‘Ah, the possibilities! Given a good song and a good drummer.'”
