Keith Richards: a man so distinctive that a famous Hollywood character was based upon him.
That screen icon was, of course, Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow from The Pirates of the Caribbean. It was a worthy honour for a man who, from the moment the Stones burst out of Swinging London Town in the early 1960s, has constantly forged his own unforgettable, truly individual and utterly cool style.
Keith Richards, this week's ShortList cover star and a man who, given his herculean intake of toxic substances really should be dead, we salute you.
Crosseyed Heart, Keith's new solo album, is released 18 September
