“Everybody loves music. What you really want is for music to love you. And that’s the way I saw it was with Keith [Richards]. It takes a certain amount of respect for the process. You’re not writing it, it’s writing you. You’re its flute or its trumpet; you’re it’s strings. That’s real obvious around Keith. He’s like a frying pan made from one piece of metal. He can heat it up really high and it won’t crack, it just changes color.”

quoted in Life by Keith Richards (New York: Little, Brown and Company, 2010), 517.
