Keith Richards May 'Start Up' Guitar Museum
Apr 21, 2008
Story by: Dan Weiss

Immortal Rolling Stones axeman Keith Richards, fresh off the premiere of Martin Scorcese's acclaimed new Stones doc, Shine A Light, is only now starting to realize that being in possession of 3,000-plus guitars does not guarantee much time to play them all. The 64-year-old legend is mulling over the idea of opening a museum to display them or possibly giving some away as gifts, which is how many were given to him in the first place. It was apparently a humbling realization for the enduring, who said, poignantly, "I don't know what I've done to deserve that. I've been one of the biggest assholes in the world!"

Richards estimates that maybe only 10 of his guitars have even been played, an undeserving neglect for what he describes as an "incredible collection of beautiful instruments."

The donation process has already begun: one guitar has already been passed onto stage-sharing blues icon Buddy Guy following his participation in the Shine A Light concert. Only 2,999 to go, Keef. Maybe set aside an early Christmas present for Johnny Depp?

I'll gladly take a couple off his hands. How 'bout a Les Paul, Keef? Or maybe a nice 12 string?
