If you want to get a hold of Keith Richards, you’re going to have to do it the old school way. By landline.
“I’m not at all hooked in any high-tech internets,” he says. “I don’t even have a (cell) phone, man. I’m talking to you from on a landline. Why would I want a (cell) phone? You crazy?” The Rolling Stones guitarist told the Associated Press in an interview.
“Usually I come, it’s spring and suddenly it’s fall when I get back,” he said.
“I spent the whole summer actually admiring the garden and also doing a bit of gardening myself; watering the veggies and the stuff. I got into a more probably normal way of life, which is un-normal.”
Still, the pandemic has created an unusually long break for Richards, who was supposed to hit the road with The Rolling Stones for a North American tour beginning this past May.
“I’m getting antsy,” he told the Associated Press. “I guess I can take a year off but it’s in the bones. I guess after all these years, it’s in our calling, the body and everything. It’s like, ’Come on, where’s our show, brother?′ It’s kind of a little weird, but at the same time, we’ve all got greater things to deal with at the moment.”
