“Music is a language that doesn’t speak in particular words. It speaks in emotions, and if it’s in the bones, it’s in the bones.” – Keith Richards

Founding member of the Rolling Stones and one of Rolling Stone magazine’s “Greatest Guitar Players of All-Time,” Keith Richards has lived a life that most of us can only imagine. Fellow Stones members Bill Wyman and Ronnie Wood have even noted that, while other bands follow the drummer, the Rolling Stones follow Keith Richards.

Like public broadcasting, Keith Richards is a towering original, who continues to walk his own path, speak his mind, and do his own thing.  And to show his personal support of music programming on New York Public Television, he has generously donated an autographed Midnight Wine Fender Telecaster Electric Guitar.

With your generous donation of $40,000, you can own this guitar signed by a living legend whose revolutionary, high-octane riffs defined “Gimme Shelter” and “Honky Tonk Woman” among other hits. Call 212.560.8222 to donate now.

Along with this exceptional instrument, you’ll also receive a letter of authenticity and a lightweight travel case. The proceeds raised from this offer benefit the production, acquisition, and broadcast of concert programs on New York Public Television.

See Keith perform with the Rolling Stones in what many fans consider to be the finest Rolling Stones concert captured on film — Ladies & Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones — shot in Texas during the “Exile on Main Street” tour in 1972 and featuring some of the best renditions of “Brown Sugar,” “Gimme Shelter,” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” ever performed live.
