Keith Richards fans feared he'd died as he trended on Twitter on his birthday

Rolling Stones fans got a fright this morning when they saw Keith Richards trending on Twitter - and mistakenly assumed he'd died.

The guitarist's name was one of the top mentions on the site today, and many feared the hard-living rocker had passed away.

However, Keith is very much alive and his name was trending as fans started celebrating his 76th birthday today.

One wrote: "Keith Richards - S**t I saw this and thought he’s either dead or going to lead the Labour Party - Happy Birthday Keef…. You Got The Silver....You Got The Gold."
