Today marks The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards’ 73rd birthday. Keef and his Glimmer Twins collaborator Mick Jagger are responsible for writing many of rock’s most beloved songs. There were many times it didn’t appear the guitarist would make it to 40, let alone 73, so today is certainly a day worth celebrating.

While Keith is best known for his work with the Stones, he’s sat-in with many rock greats over the years. Let’s look at five top-notch guest appearances featuring Keef:

1. Keith guests with Eric Clapton on “Key To The Highway” at 2013 Crossroads Festival

2. Keith guests with Willie Nelson on “Dead Flowers” in 2002


3. Keith guests with Norah Jones on “Love Hurts” in 2004


4. Keith guests with Chuck Berry on “Nadine” in 1987

5. Keith guests with Jerry Lee Lewis on “Little Queenie” in 1983
