Keith Richards Says He Didn't Attack Swedish Journalist

keith richards denies attacking journalist

Keith Richards is denying claims that he attacked Swedish journalist Markus Larsson while on a promotional tour for his new autobiography.

The journalist had given The Rolling Stones a scathing concert review back in 2007, and had described them as "amateurs," which Keith had demanded a public apology for at the time.

Would meeting this man again really incite so much anger in Keith that he'd hit him?

Here's what a spokesman for Richards had to say about the situation:

"At the conclusion of the 20min interview, Keith Richards jokingly tapped the journalist on the head after his questions got a bit silly."

TAPPED? There's a big difference between tapping and attacking, Keith.

Either way, it's probably best to keep your hands to yourself during interviews. Something to keep in mind, bb!

Do U think Keith attacked the journalist? Or was it just a "tap?"

    I actually believe Keith attacked him ’cause when Keith did other interviews after the bad review in 2007, he threated the journalist through those interviews.

    "Love" his colored Reeboks. Very Whoopi Goldberg, circa Jumpin' Jack Flash.

    He's Keith Richards, he could shit in this reporters mouth and still be better than this pie-hole. Keith Richards has a pass on just about everything. He wrote 'under my thumb' 'satisfaction' and 'sympathy for the devil' this reporter should be kissing his boots and should be thankful he was struck by such an amazing man. It's just too bad that he didn't transfer his Keith magic to this idiot.

    Oh please. Attacked? If the journalist was attacked why didn't he call the police & have Keith arrested? There was no police report and there was no attack. The journalist is getting more press by telling the story than proving that it really happened.
