If you told me to play a "Keef riff" I would just play three chords in a shuffle rhythm with a bit of fuzz. I guess my point is that I can't really tell his style from "generic 50's rock" as played by Mr. Berry or anyone else. I really don't hear the "distinctive" part -- but as I said earlier, I don't listen to much old-timey bloozy music cuz it all sounds the same to me anyway!

In a way, Stones were the ultimate 50's band (Elvis badass wiggle taken to the extreme) -- whereas the Beatles were the birth of the 60's archetype (all "arty" and serious & stuff.)

This difference is sometimes referred to as "rock & roll" vs. "Rock" (with a self-important capital R). I guess I'm just a "Rocker" not a "rock & roller"!
