The legendary rocker and his band The Rolling Stones are currently celebrating 50 years in the music industry with the release of compilation album GRRR!

The 26-year-old Florence + The Machine singer joined The Rolling Stones on stage in London last month and the 68-year-old was impressed with what she had to offer.

‘I’d never met her before or seen her work, but I just went, ‘Wow, there’s a strong voice,” he told British magazine NME.

‘And as it turned out, she’s a hell of a performer. I mean, she gave Mick a run for his money! And she can move. Great fun, lovely girl. We’d do it again.’

The guitarist has enjoyed a long career of recording and touring with band mates Mick, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.

However, being a permanent fixture within the music industry doesn’t necessarily mean Keith has any interest in keeping up with contemporary stars.

‘There’s this one cat K’Naan, from Somalia, now works out of New York, who’s got some good stuff going,’ he mused.

‘But I don’t play keep-up, no. If I hear something that I like, I say, ‘That’s nice,’ and I’ll chop the track out. But otherwise, I just listen to what I’ve always listened to, which is rhythm and blues, that’s my staple diet. And a dose of country music, and a touch of Mozart.’
