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.
