Keith Richards Explains How He Became A Pirate of the Caribbean

(Gibson) Keith Richards recently strolled the red carpet with his "blood on blood" friend Johnny Depp in Anaheim, California, for the premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

"No one is more surprised by all of it than me," Richards told The Los Angeles Times. "I never expected to work for the Disney organization for a while. I'm still shocked, but, hey, it's all good fun."

Richards' involvement in the pirate movie franchise began in 2007 with a cameo in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Richards explained, "If Johnny says he wants to do something, well, it doesn't take much to get me to show up. This is so different than what I usually do, and I love to see how it's made, you know. And I don't have to really do a lot of work. We did it in London at Pinewood Studios, and it was the usual thing. You get there early, and you wait around a long time. The makeup takes a long time; it's an incredible amount of makeup, and sometimes you're sitting there next to a guy who's getting scales put on. ... It's a lot of preparation to do something that will be short, but it's amazing stuff, as you expect." more on this story
