Keith Richards on Using Guitar Pedals

Keith Richards talked to Marc Maron about why he doesn't use guitar pedals

Keith Richards recently gave an interview to Marc Maron on his podcast that's definitely worth a listen. There's a great section forty minutes in where Keith shares his opinions on using guitar pedals:

"Hey man, it's enough to stand up straight, let alone poking around on buttons, you know. And also, any of those effects that I need can actually be done from behind. If we need tremolo we can do it from behind. Because I need to know where to put my feet. Tripping over those boxes, it just ties you down."
