Keith Richards about new technology: “The only new technology that interests me is when it sort of throws me back sound-wise. And I can think, ‘Wow, that means I can go onstage and sound like Scotty Moore now and again!’ “
As one of the founding members of the legendary rock band, The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards has been an influential figure in the music industry for over five decades. Beyond his iconic guitar riffs and timeless melodies, Richards also offers profound insights on life and the ever-changing world around us. In particular, his perspectives on new technology and its impact are both intriguing and thought-provoking.
Richards, the epitome of rock ‘n’ roll rebellion, has always been known for his unconventional approach to life. When it comes to embracing new technology, he maintains an open-minded stance that may surprise some. In one of his interviews, Richards shared his unique perspective on the subject. For Richards, music is an art form rooted in passion and emotion. He believes that no matter how advanced technology becomes, it cannot replace the raw authenticity that comes from the human touch.
While he appreciates the benefits of new tools and gadgets, he places a high value on preserving the soulful essence that only a dedicated musician can bring to their craft. In a world where technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, Richards encourages us to find a balance between embracing the new and cherishing the traditions that make us who we are. He reminds us that while technology can enrich our lives in countless ways, it is our humanity that gives purpose and meaning to everything we create.
