I have seen Barbara Charone credited with being the first to call Keith Richards "The Human Riff". But how can I verify this? I've googled (of course), but perhaps I didn't use the right search terms. The results were less than conclusive. It's such a great description, I'd like to tie it down.

The short answer is, it's not possible.

When a label or a phrase is created, people line up to claim credit for it, and it's impossible to provide irrefutable proof in cases like this.

Ms Charone may well have said it first, but she, and you, will never be able to prove it.
You could email Keith, he might remember. :-)
