Music crosses borders like little else. And some of the most inspiring evidence of this is taking hands in the studios of Playing for Change, a movement aimed at "inspiring, connecting, and bringing peace to the world through music" that's spread with the help of popular viral videos.

The movement's first video was a group of musicians across several continents collaborating on a version of "Stand by Me," (featuring over 35 musicians from 10 countries who had never met in person) and many, many more songs have spread from that first clip.

Playing for Change is slated to release their third CD/DVD set, Songs Around the World, June 17. The album includes performances from Keith Richards, Sara Bareilles, Los Lobos, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Keb Mo.

Happy 70th Birthday, Keith Richards!

Originally posted 12/18/2013 02:00PM

Keith Richards turns 70 years old Wednesday, defying the laws of both man and nature.

In tribute to everyone's favorite supernaturally durable guitarist, we've uncovered this amazing video of Hunter S. Thompson (another heroically excessive personality) interviewing Keef in 1993.

The video's chock-full of amazing parts, from the fax Richards sends to Thompson while ensconced in his hotel room ("DOC, I AM HERE BUT VANISHING. I WANT YOUR FEE IN CASH OR NO DEAL DOC") to the fact that Richards greets Thompson with what appears to be a cattle prod clenched in his fist.

Johnny Depp: Did Marilyn Manson Inspire Tonto Look?

Originally posted 04/20/2012 08:40AM

After going with a Keith Richards look in Pirates of the Caribbean, Johnny Depp may have a new rocker muse.

The actor has not only been jamming on stage with Marilyn Manson, but it appears he's also borrowed the musician's makeup tips for his Tonto character.

Depp, 48, recently displayed Manson-esque whitened face, dark-ringed eyes and long stringy dark hair during a break in filming The Long Ranger when he met gift-bearing visitors from the Navajo Nation.

The film, starring Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger, hits theaters in May 2013.

Amy Winehouse's No. 1 Fan? Keith Richards!

Originally posted 03/17/2008 10:00AM

Amy Winehouse is the only modern-day pop singer who gets the Keith Richards seal of approval.

Asked by the British Mail on Sunday's Live magazine which current artists he admires, the Rolling Stones legend said: "There's only one person. That girl Amy."

But the 64-year-old Richards, who has admitted to his own past problems with drugs, also offered words of warning to the troubled star. "That girl isn't going to be around long unless she sorts herself out pretty quick," he said. "Amy's got to get smart."
