I'd say he had a better chance then Jagger

refering to their solo careers of course

Richards' solo tunes are superior to Jagger's, but neither is worthy of Hall induction for their solo output.

I have to say no to Keith Richards solo. I can't name one song from his solo work.

"Will Keith Richards be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?"

O.K. I have a question for you all..

Tahvo, to answer your question almost two years later (ha), I would say the reason lies in popular perception of their solo endeavors. Richards' two solo records and live album are regarded as authentic, cool, macho, straightforward, bluesy, etc., which are the qualities people desire most from the Stones, whereas Jagger's non-Stones music is often derided as dated, gaudy, over-produced, etc., with Jagger himself positioned as a desperate celebrity favoring in-the-moment chart relevancy over consistent musical integrity. Fair? Perhaps, perhaps not, but there it is.

Well, the Stones ARE the best rock/Blues/country/cover even a tad of disco band EVER so that would make Keith the best rythym guitarist, right? Ronnie's awesome too. Keef Gets my unofficial vote. Didn't know this was a Jagger/Richards comment war or that they were competing against each other. For the RRHOF i mean ha ha love them both they must b tired of competing by now, right. The way Mick still runs around on stage is amazing, 71. They don't look tired Neither of them would be where they are today without the other's talent. Imagine music without the Stones, oh I can't, no way. Too horrible a thought. Love you guys too Charlie,Ron, Bill,Mick T. Etc

David, maybe they tried solo careers cause they wanted to explore other "non-Stones" sounds/possibilities like other big names Tyler/Perry for example. They sound different because they are NOT really twins. Glimmer, siamese or otherwise. Lol
