Song Writing Insights from Keith Richards….

Songs are strange things.....If they stick, they stick. With most of the songs I've ever written, quite honestly, I've felt there's an enormous gap here, waiting to be filled; this song should have been written hundreds of years ago. How did nobody pick up on that little space? Half the time you're looking for gaps that other people haven't done. And you say, I don't believe they've missed that f'ing hole! It's so obvious. It was there staring you in the face! I pick the holes.
