More on Keith Richards Casual Drug Use
Keith really didn’t do much to hide his drug use. A new tell-all book looks deeper into the Stones drug life.
Ronnie Wood’s ex-wife, Jo Wood, wrote a new book titled ‘It’s Only Rock N’ Roll: 30 Years Married to a Rolling Stone.’ She describes when she first met Keith in a Paris hotel room in 1977.
In an excerpt from the book she writes:
‘Keith reached into his bag and took out a silver spoon, a bottle of pills and a lighter. In a matter of seconds, he’d crushed some of the pills with a bit of water, cooked them up, then filled a syringe and stabbed it straight through his shirt. A moment’s pause, then he looked up at me with a radiant smile. ‘Hello, my dear. I’ve heard so much about you!’
She also wrote that on the Stones 1989 tour Mick Jagger insisted the band be more professional. They hired Jo to be Keith’s personal assistant on the tour.
