Keith Richards Owns 3,000 Guitars

December 27th, 2010 11:37am EST

Keith Richards Rocker Keith Richards spends a fortune on storing his collection of 3,000 guitars, but he only ever plays 15 of them onstage or in a recording studio.

The Rolling Stones star 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.

He tells Britain's BBC Radio 2, "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."
