Rolling Stones’ eternal wild man Keith Richards, 74, spoke to The Telegraph, telling them he’s currently sober and hasn’t had a drink since Christmas.
“I’m not saying I’m definitely off all of this stuff,” he protests. “In six months’ time, I might be on it again. But at the moment, for a couple of months, I haven’t touched it.” When I ask how he is finding abstinence, he chuckles ruefully. “It’s novel.”
He goes on to say that he’s over today’s drug options, anyway.
“Drugs are not interesting these days,” he said. “They are very institutionalised and bland. And, anyway, I’ve done ’em all.
The things I could show you, my dear. Come, take my hand.
Hold your breath, make a wish
Count to three
Come with me and you’ll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you’ll see into your imagination
We’ll begin with a spin
Traveling in the world of my creation
What we’ll see will defy explanation
