Keith Richards’ morning routine

Posted February 28th, 2008 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

In recent comments to Uncut magazine about how his bandmate Mick Jagger is a “power freak” and “a bit vain”, Keith Richards revealed himself to be much more nonchalant about his daily routine: “I just go ‘Thank God I’m awake’ and wait for three or four hours before I do anything.” Richards was also asked what advice he’d give to his younger self, to which he surprisingly replied: “I’d have said ‘Lay off the dope.’ That’s my advice now to all younger members who are into this sort of thing — oh, give it up, it ain’t really worth it.” The self-anointed drug counselor then goes on to needle his peers in Led Zeppelin, commenting on their recent reunion show: “They had one? Well, well done Jimmy and Robert. Fuck off. ‘Stairway To Heaven’ don’t make it for me, baby.”
