Keith Richards Is Sober?!

| Filed under: Music MinuteSuper Seniors



Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has reportedly given up alcohol, not having a drink in four months! A source close to Keith explains:

"There's no guarantees that he'll say off it — but he's doing really well so far. He has always quite enjoyed the fact that he seemed to be able to carry on drinking as much as he likes with no real negative impact on his health."

But apparently his bandmate Ronnie Wood inspired him to quit after Wood started boozing again and left his wife Jo Wood of 23 years to run away with the 21-year-old cocktail waitress Katia Ivanova. The source continues:

"He has watched Ronnie fall well and truly off the wagon last year and he doesn't like what he sees. Plus he has started to feel for the first time like it might do his some good to give up the booze for awhile."

Good for Keef!

    So he waits basically until it doesn't matter any more.

    You know
    you're too far gone
    when you're
    Keith Richards
    inspiration to
    jump on the wagon.

    Please go back on the sauce immediately, Keith. Hate to say it but the abrupt change to your system that sobriety will bring will probably kill you at this point. "Life's just a cocktail party on the street."

    I'm a huge fan of The Stones and i gotta admit this made me laugh.We're talking about a guy thats done sooo much smack back in the 70's that he had at least 3 blood transfusions and now hes scared about what may happen if he sips some Jack Daniels?i don't do or encourage taking drugs but this cat made his best music fucked up out of his mind!
    A sober Keef!!!??!!!one more thing I can blame on Obama!(Just kidding!)

    This is not good. Without alcohol's preservational powers he is surely doomed.

    "for a while"???? He doesn't even have a "while" to live. With all the drinking and drugs he's done his chronological age is 156. He should consider himself lucky and quit forever or why bother at all? What would be the point?

    I LOOOVVVE THIS MAN SOOOO !!! ******sigh******

    Great! Now the liquer industry will go belly-up.

    Message to Ron Wood: You know you are pretty fucked up when you inspire Keith to give up drinking!!!!! Of all the drugs, alcohol has been the most abused by the Stones and both Keith and Ron need to spend some time at DrinkingAndDriving.Org.

    I hope he gets new caps (the ones he is wearing are awful)!

    This is quite possibly the ugliest man in the world.

    No negative effects…wat the???? The guy looks like a hobo. He's a substance abuser and has been since the year dot….The only difference between him and the down n outa on the street is that he lucked out and is a Rolling Stone. He has had a very lucky life for all his abuse. Good on ya mate. You are a lucky one.

    Why don't old British men know how to dress? They either look like bums or drag queens.

  21. 21

    Forget sober, what I really want to know is who took a bite out of his nose? Ew.

  22. 22

    love him!

    I Love this guy too! You just never know what he's gonna do, but when he does it, it's surprising and cool. There's a whole book about it, called "What Would Keith Richards Do?" that actually shows this guy's got a philosophy to survival! Go Keith!
