In addition to Keith Richards, the X-Pensive Winos feature drummer Steve Jordan, guitarist Waddy Wachtel, bassist Charley Drayton, and keyboardist Ivan Neville.
For Keith Richards, hitting the stage still remains a reason for being: “It’s this kaleidoscopic, sort of, mayhem. You only have — it’s no two takes in that game, y’know? You’re on stage, you’re on, you can’t stop. I think what you put it down to the incredible energy of the audience. Y’know, they overwhelmingly outnumber us, but we’re the focal point.”
