Keith Richards has a new video for the track ‘Big Town Playboy’, one of the extras on the 30th-anniversary edition of ‘Talk Is Cheap’.

‘Talk Is Cheap’ was the first solo album for Richards. Keith is celebrating the anniversary with an expanded edition of the record. “This album holds up,“ Keith Richards says. “I’ve been listening to it and not through the mists of nostalgia either because it doesn’t affect me that way. This is more than the sum of its parts. I really admire it. We were having fun and you can hear it.”

The reissue will also be available as a limited edition box set.

From March 22nd ‘The Final Five’ from the production line will be featured in ‘The Keith Collection’, an exhibition in some of the worlds top Rock n Roll hotels including the Karma Sanctum Soho in London, 25hours Bikini Hotel in Berlin, L’Hotel Paris, O.D. BARCELONA and Andaz West Hollywood. Without being one of the lucky 1145 people to own one of these limited edition boxes, this will be the only opportunity to see the box in all its glory.

These boxes really are pieces of art with a real-wood case that was hand-built and aged by Fender, using the same materials as Keith’s iconic vintage Telecaster, Micawber. It takes 37 Fender staff to complete each box, plus an additional 11 different suppliers of parts and services: from corrugated boxes to graphics on the chrome control plate, to the sawmill cutting the ash. It takes 2 weeks to produce each box. However, the first box took about 4 months and 20 different prototypes to get each part correct.

“The ageing on the brass nameplate is done in a high-temperature metal tempering oven (Temperature, time, and the exact process is a trade secret). The ash exterior is a multi-step process that is also proprietary, but is different than we use in ageing guitars, due to the precision required to age a guitar in the appropriate areas that wear due to use.” Mike Born, Head of Wood at Fender

You will find ‘The Final Five’ in the following hotels from March 14th for 8 weeks:
#1146 – Karma Sanctum Soho, London
#1147 – 25hours Hotel Bikini, Berlin
#1148 – O.D. BARCELONA
