Keith Richards wrote about his decision to boycott South Africa in his book titled, 'Life". In it he recalls bumping into fellow musician Gram Parsons in 1968. Parsons was planning to perform in South Africa but when confronted by the reality of the injustices going on at the time, Parsons joined Richards in boycotting South Africa. In the 80's Richards was joined by fellow Rolling Stones member Ronnie Wood in the "Artists United to End Apartheid" campaign which produced the music video "Ain't Gonna Play Sun City". The video and lyrics opened the eyes of the world to the atrocities going on in South Africa and played a major role in ending apartheid.
