A shocking revelation about The Living Riff!
While Mick Jagger is throwing shapes to 'Satisfaction' on stage with Taylor Swift, apparently Keith Richards has been striking up a friendship with her mate Ed.
Chatting to Rolling Stone about The Rolling Stones guitarist, Ed Sheeran said:
"He's definitely a kind and humble person, but he's definitely Keith Richards. He can handle his drink and drugs. The best thing he said to me was when I was talking to him about getting arrested, and he said, "I've never had a problem with drugs — I had a problem with the police."
Talking about contemporary he likes nowadays in a recent Quietus chat (and there aren't many since Amy Winehouse), Keith made it a bit of mutual appreciation society.
“These days? You know what? Ed Sheeran is really interesting to me… Yeah, yeah. Lovely guitar and he’s a one-man band at the moment but he has the potential. And James Bay. They’re the two that come to mind immediately.”
While we're at it, here's a 72-year-old getting extremely excited about Mick joining Taylor.
