Video: The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards Fends Off Stage Invader with Telecaster

February 13th, 2012

Last week, the Rolling Stones uploaded the below video to their YouTube channel featuring a 1981 performance of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” at Hampton Coliseum in Virginia.

As the video’s description points out, halfway through the song, a fan jumps on stage and makes a run at frontman Mick Jagger. Like any good guitarist/bandmate would do, Keith Richards thinks fast and fends off the fan using his Fender Telecaster. Check out the video below for all the action (which starts at around 1:10 into the video.) —Josh Hart

    I’d want Keith watching my back too. He’s the best.

    Damn..just like at Altamont. Wait..same guy as at Altamont. I think it’s part of the act.

    The murder of John Lennon was still fresh on everyones minds. Keef wasn’t taking any chances.
