Back in September, rock legend Keith Richards visited New York City for a very special iHeartRadio ICONS event at the iHeartRadio Theater, presented by P.C. Richard & Son.

During the event, Keith participated in our Q&A event, which was hosted by the one and only Jim Kerr, to get all the goods about the music icon's solo album, Crosseyed Heart. The release was a huge milestone, considering it marked his first solo record in 23 years.

During the discussion, the singer admitted that he was inspired to work on the project by a very close confidant. "My great friend and collaborator and friend of many years Steve Jordan gave me a little kick," he said, before revealing that the sound of Crosseyed Heart was filled with some recording technique that he used when making Rolling Stones classics like "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Street Fighting Man."
