"There were many who tried to imitate Keith Richards. Not a safe thing to do," says photographer Ethan Russell about Keef, who, judging by Russell's iconic stage photo of him staring down a bottle of Jack Daniel's and a couple of cans of Coors beer, must have requested a bar setup in his concert rider. Russell, who shot the Rolling Stones during their 1972 US tour, is part of a multi-photographer exhibition exploring the notoriously debauched Stones guitarist, titled 'Before They Make Me Run: Portraits of Keith Richards 1963-1972.' The exhibition, which coincides with the release of Richards' new autobiography, 'Life,' runs at the San Francisco Art Exchange till mid-November and can also be viewed online.
