How is Keith Richards Still Alive?
It is the question muttered all across the world…how is Keith Richards still alive? His name is truly synonymous with rock and roll excess. Keith Richards has just released his autobiography, and with it comes some interesting commentary. Head over to the BBC for a 5-minute interview with Richards and to get some great quips from the guitarist.
Richards describes hurtling around swinging London fuelled by speedballs, a cocktail of cocaine and heroin he refers to with his customary louche archness as “the breakfast of champions”.
He claims that during the notorious Redlands raid of 1967, he allowed the police into his home in Sussex because he was under the misapprehension, as a result of copious quantities of LSD, that the officers were dwarves “wearing dark blue, with shiny bits and helmets”.
