London: Rocker Keith Richards has revealed that he has a collection of 3,000 guitars and spends a fortune on storing them.
The Rolling Stones star only ever plays 15 of them onstage or in a recording studio.
Richards has amassed a huge haul of instruments during his five decades in the music industry, but most of his prized collection is gathering dust in a warehouse.
And the legendary hellraiser is also humble about his plucking skills, insisting he’s not a very good guitarist.
"The storage costs me more than they’re worth. I don’t even consider myself a guitar player. I am not a Hendrix or Clapton," a daily quoted him as telling BBC Radio 2.
