(Watch) Nirvana Achieved: Still Soaring Keith Richards Records Brilliant Tribute Version of Lou Reed’s “Waiting for the Man”

Share

We have reached nirvana. And an inflection point.

Keith Richards — noted former drug addict — recording the late Lou Reed’s “Waiting for the Man.” I mean, everything comes together here, doesn’t it?

Keith, now 80, kicked drugs and remains a medical miracle and a musical hero. But you can imagine him sending someone up to Lexington and one-two-five, can’t you?

PLAY IT LOUD!

This is part of a tribute album for Lou’s coming birthday.
In honor of Lou Reed’s birthday, Keith Richards has recorded a cover of “I’m Waiting for the Man.” The digital single & music video are out now and featured on the upcoming album The Power of the Heart: A Tribute to Lou Reed, which includes newly recorded covers from Keith Richards, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Rufus Wainwright, Lucinda Williams, Maxim Ludwig & Angel Olsen, Rickie Lee Jones, Mary Gauthier, Bobby Rush, Automatic, The Afghan Whigs, and Rosanne Cash. This special collection will be released by Light in the Attic Records and available on Vinyl & CD at fine independent record shops worldwide on Record Store Day (April 20th).
