Rolling Stones guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood are among the guest artists on Jerry Lee Lewis' album "Rock & Roll Time," which is set for release on Oct. 28, 2014, the same day that Lewis' memoir "Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Words" is scheduled to go on sale. According to Music Week, other guests on the album include Neil Young, Doyle Bramhall II and Nils Lofgren.

Meanwhile, the Rolling Stones made this announcement on their official website on June 25, 2014:

Keith will be talking about his favorite blues tracks and his love affair with the blues, for a radio special show airing on Planet Rock on Sunday 29 June. Keith will play tracks from Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Otis Redding and Chuck Berry.

“He’d left his guitar out in his dressing room and I’d just been sitting there and I just picked it up. “ Keith says. “And he walks in, “nobody touches that”, bam!! But he didn’t know it was me. And then a few months later I get sort of these apologetic, “Keith I didn’t know it was you”. It don’t matter. Chuck, you did the right move, I wouldn’t let nobody touch mine either!”

Hear Keith Richards on "My Planet Rocks" with Liz Barnes, Sunday 29 June at 7pm and again 3 July at 8pm.

Richards was one of the artists featured in the 1987 Chuck Berry documentary film "Hail! Hail! Rock 'N Roll" (directed by Taylor Hackford), which chronicles two 1986 all-star concerts celebrating Berry's 60th birthday. Berry's prickly attitude toward Richards is also seen in that movie.
