Keith Richards Talks Rolling Stones Break Up
(Gibson) Last fall, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards caused a bit of a stir in the media with comments he wrote about frontman Mick Jagger in his new autobiography, Life. Keef called Mick "unbearable" and joked about his bandmate's sexual prowess (or lack thereof).
But, in an interview with the Daily Express, Richards says things are great between the two best-known Stones and that they are closer than ever, because they learned to become "more tolerant of one another."
The guitarist explained that his and Mick's friendship reached its low point in the mid-'80s, when the Stones briefly broke up. He said that he included his thoughts on that period because he felt he had to be honest. "My main point was to explain what the Stones have gone through," he said. "I don't think Mick, up until right now, knew how deep a cut that was. Not just to me but the rest of the band. It became a very difficult period, from the late '80s until 1990. I used to call it World War III." more on this story
