Keith Richards Full Signature Signed Photo Rolling Stones – COA PSA/DNAGo Back

The Rolling Stones weren’t Annie Leibovitz’s easiest subjects. In the early 1970s, the young photographer attempted to shoot the band in a gold Cadillac – borrowed from the movie star Tuesday Weld – only for Mick Jagger to nix the idea, after examining the automobile.
Nevertheless, Annie managed to shoot the Stones in a more natural setting on their 1972 tour, and some of these images must have met with Mick’s approval, as, three years later, in 1975, he invited Leibovitz to be their tour photographer.
“Mick asked me to be their Cartier-Bresson,” she recalls in her new book. “I’m not sure what he meant by that. I think he wanted me to come along because I was young and might liven things up.”
This photograph of the Rolling Stones Keith Richards is one that was taken by Leibovitz during that 1972 tour in San Francisco. Richards is a self-styled rebel, a man who not only lived outside the law but flaunted it. The photo oozes rock ‘n’ roll and the rock star process with Richards as the main focal point. It shows an elegantly wasted man unconscious in his dressing room.
The highlight is that Richards provided a full name autograph on this dandy. It is properly contrasted in black felt tip pen (“9-10″) on his iconic image. The photo within matte measures 14″ x 20″ with the entire display measuring 22″ x 27.5”. Overall, one of the best images to have autographed as a representation of great belts, rock and its rebellion. Wait…how old is Kieth Richards again?
