For over 50 years, Rolling Stones’ career is still thriving in the business, making them one of the greatest rock bands in the annals of the music industry. With this, numerous films about them were made to highlight the band’s longevity even for today’s standards. One, in particular, their 2008 concert film Shine A Light by Martin Scorsese, highlights a defining moment of Keith Richards’ ability to produce an emotional piece entitled, “Only Found Out Yesterday,” played backstage before the start of their concert at the Beacon Theatre in New York back in 2006.
Keith Richards, who served as the band’s lead guitarist throughout the beginning, sure knows how to strum the chords to perfection, making him one of the best guitarists of all time. The mellow tune deeply contrasts the people’s buzz around the Beacon Theatre, as he gives a neat rendition to this soft, smooth song. It’s raw and pure to listen to, a hallmark of Richards’ career as a virtuosic guitarist.
