Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has two career regrets, he never got to play with Otis Redding and Warren Zevon.

During four decades of performing with the rock legends, Richards has managed to jam with every other musician he's ever admired - but Redding was killed in a plane crash in 1967 and Zevon died of cancer in 2003.

The 61-year-old says, "I don't regret being in the same band for 40 years.

"I've played with Muddy Waters, Hubert Sumlin, HOWLIN' WOLF, Chuck Berry, SOLOMON BURKE - nearly every cat that's turned me on.

"I regret Otis - I was hoping Mr Redding would be around forever - and I regret never getting hold of Warren Zevon."
