keith richards- cool guy
My My Hey Hey Rock and Roll is here to stay, sings Neil Young.
Tony Bourdain on Keith Richards during an interview in St. Paul, Minn.:Tony, I know you appreciate food and can put away large quatities in one sitting. How do you manage to keep trim? I don't get the impression that exercising with a cigarette hanging out of your mouth is the answer.
Anthony Bourdain: My diet and health regime is as follows: a healthy breakfast of coffee and cigarettes, a big lunch, sensible dinner. I don't snack. I don't eat Cheese Doodles. I don't eat Pringles and I'm not into desserts and sweets. I call it the Keith Richards exercise plan. Every day that Keith Richards still walks this earth is a validation of my workout regimen.
Today is Keith's 66th birthday, and 26th wedding anniversary.
According to those who proclaim to know, all it took was the love a good woman, in this case model Patti Hansen, to put paid to the "mad, bad, dangerous to know" Keith of old. He's mellowed into a thoughtful, loving husband, parent and general good guy.
Still though, I'd hate to see that mug in the mirror whenever I looked.
