Talk Is Cheap
Historique

Alors que les relations sont très tendues entre Keith Richards et Mick Jagger, que ce dernier a déjà sorti deux albums en solo (She's the Boss en 1985 et Primitive Cool en 1987), Keith Richards décide à son tour d'enregistrer un disque en solo. Il rassemble plusieurs musiciens qui constituent un groupe baptisé The X-Pensive Winos qui l'accompagnera sur scène et en invite d'autres à jouer sur l'album, comme son ancien partenaire au sein des Rolling Stones, Mick Taylor
