Keith Richards has revealed he isn’t a fan of pop or rap music, in a latest announcement that must have shocked some pop music enthusiasts.
The Rolling Stones guitarist, 79, made the revelation in an interview with The Telegraph, affirming that while he enjoys listening to blues, jazz and classical, he dislikes pop and rap.
Listen as he validates his claim.
“I don’t want to start complaining about pop music,” he said. “It’s always been rubbish. I mean, that’s the point of it. They make it as cheap and as easy as possible and therefore it always sounds the same; there’s very little feel in it.”
Keith continued, “I like to hear music by people playing instruments. That is, I don’t like to hear plastic synthesised muzak, as it used to be known, what you hear in elevators, which is now the par for the course.”
On the subject of rap music, the rocker added, “I don’t really like to hear people yelling at me and telling me it’s music, AKA rap. I can get enough of that without leaving my house.”
