Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards received the Brass Balls honor during Spike TV’s fifth annual “Guys Choice” event, which taped June 4 and will air June 10 at 9 p.m. ET.

“Keith Richards is a rock ‘n’ roll superhero who lives his life the way he plays his music — balls to the wall,” said Spike TV’s Casey Patterson in press release prior to the event. “Our audience doesn't just want to honor Keith Richards, they want to be Keith Richards.”

Sean Penn and the rest of the “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” cast also were on hand for the event; the movie was inducted into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame.
