The Benevolent Mr. Richards

Posted By on Sat, Dec 27, 2008 at 8:55 AM

Rolling Stones lead guitar man Keith Richards has donated an autographed guitar for an auction to benefit the Rector High School Helping Hands Foundation in Jonesboro.  The foundation was established in 2006 to help financially disadvantaged students.  Richards has quite a history in Arkansas.  He even got a pardon from former governor Mike Huckabee for a 1975 incident involving reckless driving and a concealed knife.
