Crosseyed heart“Crosseyed Heart” is the title of one of the few solo albums of Keith Richards (the third to be exact, after the last published in 1992), founder and guitarist of the Rolling Stones. It was released a few months ago, he did of course around the world and hit the charts, giving an essential music, raw, between electric and acoustic, stuck in an old voice, hoarse, ironic. So returning a faithful soul music of the old Keef, even today – at the age of seventy– inextricably linked and without a second thought to the precepts of the rock ‘n’ roll and blues. Precepts that thanks to him – that with the Stones celebrated fifty years of career – have evolved into a balanced mixture of irreverence formal stamp dry, solid structures but never redundant, indeed much defined by empty (some of his great riffs Richards them compounds with five-string guitar), mixed with an electric force that had been unseen (and who has not had substantial changes). The album has set in motion a series of initiatives that see Richards engaged on several fronts, as indeed we had demonstrated its last productions “literary”: the best-selling autobiography “Life” (published in 2010) and its recent Illustrated History “Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar”. Now Netflix is ​​promoting the broadcast, by subscription, “Under the Influence,” directed by Morgan Neville and presented last September at the Toronto Film Festival. Originally the film was born as a sort of story of the new disc, and then turns into a real journey into the world and in the visions of a pillar of contemporary music.

This is the trailer.
