The Two-Hour Event To Air In More Than 100 Countries Worldwide Premiering On Spike TV Tuesday, October 27 At 10 PM

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."

Spike TV will pay homage to the single coolest guitar legend on the planet with a SCREAM-worthy tribute from some of Richards' most die-hard fans. Richards, who in 2007 won "SCREAM's" Best Cameo Award for his role in "Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End," is unstoppable and he continues to successfully fight to keep the nervy, rebellious and wildly defiant spirit of Rock & Roll alive and well.
