It was a busy weekend for rocker Keith Richards. The 72-year-old Rolling Stones legend took over the UK’s BBC Four television network for a three-night special broadcast entitled Keith Richards’ Lost Weekend.
In between hand picking his own favorite television programs to air and creating a soundtrack for the weekend, Richards took to Twitter to discuss his own mortality.
“I was number one on the who-is-most-likely-to-die list for 10 years,” Richards tweeted. “I was really disappointed when I fell of the list!”

Since falling off the list and staying out of the death pool, Keith has begun to believe in immortality.
“Some doctor told me I had six months to live and I went to his funeral,” Keith said in another Tweet. “I’ll write all your epitaphs!”
Since he doesn’t plan on departing this mortal coil anytime soon, Richards had some wisdom to impart on his 700,000 Twitter followers on Sunday night: “Getting old is a fascinating thing. The older you get, the older you want to get!”
Here’s to many more birthdays, Keef!
