“You see, I don’t really give a damn what they - what the media or whatever you call ‘em - write about me. You know, I’d just like to see all those c*cksuckers spending an hour onstage doing what I do, and see how they stand up to it. I just presume they have nothing better to do, or that they’re hard up for a story, or whatever. It still goes on and I just go along with the Bad publicity is better than no publicity idea. I mean, if they wrote about me as the sweet, gentle, loving family man, it would probably do me more damage. And be equally untrue. They don’t know anything anyway. They’ll just blow anything up out of all proportions like that Ron Wood to replace Keith Richards story which started off as a mildly funny drunken joke we thought up at Tramps one night, and which Fleet Street got hold of and blew up.Same with the busts. Everyone thinks I’ve been busted hundreds of time when in fact this now is only the second time I’ver even been brought up before a court. I mean Mick Jagger’s been busted more than I have, but because you’re a celebrity or whatever, everyone gets to hear about it.” ― Keith Richards on The Keith Richards image, 1973.

Looks like European tour rehearsals. Same place the films black and blue promos. The windows In The upper left are a giveaway.
Looks like Europe 73. Micks hair was a lot shorter during the Australian 73 tour. Def not 72. Bianca had long hair during 72.
Wow! I knew the armstrongs were around during the 72 tour but I never knew they were used!
That is the meanest sounding (and ugliest ) guitar he has ever used.
