08/23/2005: Because you were just yearning for this list...
Spin charts the 25 "most incredible" rock star body parts in its September issue, now on newsstands. Madonna's navel tops the list.I don't know about you, but I'd put Keith Richards's liver first on my list. If a geneticist can ever unlock the secret of Richards's mutation that gives his liver such incredible powers of neutralizing just about every poison that Keith's ingested in a long and storied career of polysubstance abuse, s/he will not only have made the most significant breakthrough in preventive toxicology in the history of medicine, but s/he will be a shoo-in for the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine. The Nobel equivalent of a first ballot Hall of Famer.
"It's what first marked her as a mainstream provocateur," senior Spin writer Marc Spitz writes.
At No. 2 is the liver of Rolling Stones' Keith Richards, which is so durable, Spitz writes, that "when Richards finally passes, they'll line the exterior of the space shuttle with his liver tissue."
A quick glance at Spin's website shows that this article hasn't been posted yet. Might be worth keeping an eye on the website to see if they post it.
