The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood’s ex-wife, and model, Jo Wood recently discussed seeing Keith Richards inject heroin the first time she met him. Keith Richards ‘begging’ for an older woman to do drugs was revealed last week.
Wood told Daily Mirror, “I put on my sarong and, before I knew it, there was Ronnie at the door with a big smile on his face, telling me he was sorry. Concorde had blown an engine and they’d had to make a landing in Ireland.
While he’s saying that, some other bloke shoves past us into the room. He didn’t even look at me, just sat on the floor at the end of the bed, rummaging in a doctor’s bag.
He pulled out a silver spoon, a bottle of pills and a lighter. In a few seconds he’d filled a syringe and injected himself straight through his jacket. There was a tiny pause while the drugs hit his system and then he looked up at me and said, ‘How very nice to meet you, my dear. I’ve heard such a lot about you.’ And that’s the story of how I met Keith Richards for the first time.”
Keith Richards’ bag full of drugs was exposed last week. While everyone loves Keith Richards, a fan on Reddit isn’t a huge fan of Mick Jagger’s voice. PeterGreen27 said, “Now don’t get me wrong: This guy can sing well when he wants to, there’s no doubt about it. Look at Let It Loose, Shine A Light, Angie, the entire side 2 of Tattoo You. He does a great falsetto.
But: A lot of times, he’s really singing below the level he could, especially live. Yes, there are some quite good live shows where he sings as well or even better than the studio versions. But let’s face it, there’s also lots of times where his singing is pretty sub-par and just completely flat or mumbled. Which i think is kinda disappointing, because again, he can sing.
I think he’s a great songwriter and what he’s probably best at is being a frontman. He’s a very charming guy and he can dance pretty good as well, all I’m saying is his singing his often far below the quality he’s actually capable of and that the listeners deserve.”
