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?"
