Overview

In his own words-from rock's most legendary bad boy.

Rock 'n' roll legend and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has quite a few things to say: about Mick Jagger, the Stones, sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, and life itself. Sample these nuggets of wit and wisdom chipped from the tablets of Stone:

On etiquette: "I've never turned blue in someone else's bathroom. I consider that the height of bad manners."

On Mick Jagger: "My aim is always to try to introduce a bit of levity into his life."

On the police: "There was a knock on our dressing-room door. Our manager shouted, 'Keith! Ron! The Police are here!' Oh, man, we panicked, flushed everything down the john. Then the door opened and it was Stewart Copeland and Sting."

On family: "My father. I snorted my father. He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow."

On dental care: "Miraculously, due to abstinence and prayer, my teeth grew back."
