NEW YORK, Oct. 15 -- Spike TV will honor the legendary rock icon Keith Richards with the "SCREAM 2009" Rock Immortal Award, it was announced today by Casey Patterson, svp, talent development and event production, Spike TV.

"Keith Richards is part rock god, part superhero and nobody had rocked as hard and lived to tell about it," said Patterson. "As his friend Johnny Depp once pointed out, Keith Richards was a beloved and feared pirate long before he ever played the part in any movie."
