Blues fans at a small Connecticut club were treated to a surprise performance by Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards. The guitarist jumped on stage at The BoxCar on Friday night for some off-the-cuff music with 89-year-old David Honeyboy Edwards and Rocky Lawrence.
“That’s right, this is my neighborhood, too. At least part of the time,” Richards, who owns a home in nearby Weston, told the crowd.
Lawrence, of West Haven, was ecstatic.
“When the three of us were up there, I was having so much fun I forgot there was even an audience there,” he said.
Richards signed a Telecaster guitar for the bar’s owner, Kevin Kiekel. It is displayed in a case behind the bar.
