Rolling Stones - All About You
Keith Richards: You dont stop growing until they shovel the dirt in
Just like that, I was on the other side of the glass with Mick, Charlie, Keith, and Ronnie, in the hotel rooms, on the airplane, watching the band play from the wings, even from the stage itself. Put on my robe! I watched the Stones rehearse in a middle-school gym. I talked Chicago and jazz with Charlie Watts in a hotel suite. I drank whiskey with Ron Wood and the sax player Bobby Keys when they got word that a friend of theirs, pianist Nicky Hopkins, had died in Nashville.
Most leadership lessons come from management books, but sometimes they pop up in unexpected places, like Rolling Stones lead guitarist Keith Richards' memoir, Life Little, Brown, As you would expect, Life is filled with rollicking stories, like the one in which a very ticked-off Charlie Watts punched out a very wasted Mick Jagger for imperiously demanding to see "his drummer" at five in the morning. But it also offers a few business insights. One of them is the importance of focus and prioritization to a successful career. You might think that being the lead guitarist of the world's greatest bar band is all about sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. But the page book makes it clear that rock 'n' roll always comes first for Richards.
Keith Richards: Crosseyed Heart review everything a fan could hope for
It is sung by guitarist Keith Richards. The song is a slow bittersweet ballad that has been interpreted as a final comment on the Anita Pallenberg romance that began in and ended in when Richards met his future wife model Patti Hansen. Richards' lyrics and singing express mixed feelings of attachment and revulsion; however, the song may also be interpreted as an early sign of the fracturing relationship between Richards and Jagger, the longtime leaders of the band. Richards had "cleaned up" after his Toronto heroin bust and wanted to take more responsibility back from Jagger. The lead singer and businessman had kept the band rolling through the worst period of Richards' excesses in the 70s, and in several interviews, Richards stated he immediately encountered resistance from Jagger regarding his new interest in taking some of the front man's burden. Richards said in , "I went through a very tough thing in the early '80s with Mick. So you get some songs like 'All About You,' to name just one.
In his autobiography, Keith said he once cleared a hotel room of unwanted guests by getting a gun out and firing it through the floor. In when Keith Richards arrived two and a half hours late for a UK court appearance, on drug and driving charges, he blamed his late arrival on the fact that his trousers had not been returned from the cleaners on time. On the night of the infamous Redlands drug bust, Keith was so far gone on LSD that when the police arrived at his Sussex country mansion, he mistook them for uniformed dwarves, welcoming them in with open arms. A heavy smoker since his teens, we worked out that smoking a packet a day of Marlboros, Keith has smoked over half a million cigarettes! He ran through it once before falling asleep. Richards was almost crushed by a pile of heavy books.
T here are few things in life that make you feel more pathetic than smoking an e-cigarette in front of Keith Richards. Smouldering Marlboro in one hand, glass in the other, shirt open, tight black jeans encasing legs so skinny you wonder how they support the rest of him, slight though the rest of him is. No, no, no. Whatever it sounds like, you hear it a great deal. Almost everything Richards says seems to come accompanied by laughter, but nothing makes him laugh harder than the subject of his announcement that he was going to retire. And also, there was no sign of the Stones coming out of hibernation.
