Led Zeppelin Make Crazy Keith Richards Alcohol Revelation


Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has posted on Instagram about working with The Rolling Stones, and how Keith Richards gave him champagne as a reward after recording.

“#OnThisDay in 1986, ‘One Hit (To the Body)’ was released on The Rolling Stones’ Dirty Work album. ⠀⠀
@ronniewood had got in touch with me while I was staying at the Plaza Hotel in New York and invited me to come to the studio and lay down some guitar on a track of @officialkeef. I was really up for this idea as I had done some studio work before on a track playing with Keith at Ronnie’s studio at The Wick in Richmond, England.
Actually, the session was not for Keith’s album, it was for @therollingstones, and I overdubbed a number of solos over the track. I think it worked out pretty good. Keith kindly sent me a magnum of champagne after the session.

The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards discussed having a ‘little irritation’ with bandmate Mick Jagger in a new Rolling Stone interview.

“What I was happy about was that I could step out of the Stones and just as easily step back in. But I learned a lot about being a frontman. I appreciated it a lot more — Mick’s angle on things — onstage especially. It widened my perspective of what everybody has to do in a band. It gave me more respect for the frontman.”

“You realize that you’re it all the time; you don’t stop. With the Stones, I’m in a beautiful position of being able to go forward whenever I feel like it, or just hunker down with the band and the groove. I have choices. The frontman has no choice.”
