Re: Miscellaneous/Amusing News Items

Keeef has always seemed like a smart and pretty funny man to me...this book should have some great stories.

Quote:
ROLLING Stones guitarist Keith Richards has signed a deal reportedly worth more than $US7 million ($8.2 million) to write his autobiography, tracing his trek from cherubic choirboy to rock'n'roll survivor.

The memoir will hit stores late 2010, said New York-based publisher Little, Brown and Co, which joined with Britain's Weidenfeld & Nicolson to secure worldwide English-language rights.

Media reports said a bidding war had pushed the price above $US7 million, a hefty sum given that music-based books are traditionally not big sellers. Legendary guitarist Eric Clapton reportedly received a $US5 million advance for his upcoming memoir.

Richards, 63, will collaborate on the book with James Fox, author of the 1982 murder mystery White Mischief.

The Stones' guitarist becomes only the second member of the venerable band to write his memoir, following former bassist Bill Wyman, who wrote Stone Alone in 1990. Singer Mick Jagger started to write an autobiography, but soon got bored and abandoned the idea.

Richards has never been shy about expressing his opinions, with Jagger often bearing the brunt of his acerbic wit.

The guitarist got himself into big trouble with his family earlier this year when he claimed he had snorted the ashes of his dead father.

Re: Miscellaneous/Amusing News Items

I know, I can't imagine Keith ever being innocent. In the words of Roy Slaven ( an Australian satirist/comedian):

Quote:
When Keith wrote "I met a gin-soaked bar room queen in Memphis", I believed it, and I believe she did try to take him upstairs for a ride, but I don't expect him to remember much about it.

Ooh, I have a Mick Jagger story! A couple of years ago a journalist friend of mine was staying at a very expensive hotel in Hong Kong (for free of course ) and went up to the roof to check out the pool. There, in all his glory, was Mick Jagger wearing a tiny pair of swimmers, lounging on a deck chair with no fewer than three aspiring actress/model types hovering around him. My friend said he was skinny, wrinkly and to quote her, "wouldn't get laid if he were carpet" except for the fact that he is Mick Jagger.

Is he very wrinkly now? I can't even recall the last time I saw him on TV. Tiny swimmers.. that is so Mick.

She was talking about his body. She said it was all wrinkly and that he was incredibly thin. He's probably had work done on his face I would imagine.

Re: Miscellaneous/Amusing News Items

And in more must-know news.....


Quote:
A Swedish heavy metal fan has had his musical preferences officially classified as a disability. The results of a psychological analysis enable the metal lover to supplement his income with state benefits.

Roger Tullgren, 42, from Hässleholm in southern Sweden has just started working part time as a dishwasher at a local restaurant.

Because heavy metal dominates so many aspects of his life, the Employment Service has agreed to pay part of Tullgren's salary. His new boss meanwhile has given him a special dispensation to play loud music at work.

"I have been trying for ten years to get this classified as a handicap," Tullgren told The Local.

"I spoke to three psychologists and they finally agreed that I needed this to avoid being discriminated against."

Roger Tullgren first developed an interest in heavy metal when his older brother came home with a Black Sabbath album in 1971.

Since then little else has mattered for the 42-year-old, who has long black hair, a collection of tattoos and wears skull and crossbones jewelry.

The ageing rocker claims to have attended almost three hundred shows last year, often skipping work in the process.

Eventually his last employer tired of his absences and Tullgren was left jobless and reliant on welfare handouts.

But his sessions with the occupational psychologists led to a solution of sorts: Tullgren signed a piece of paper on which his heavy metal lifestyle was classified as a disability, an assessment that entitles him to a wage supplement from the job centre.

"I signed a form saying: 'Roger feels compelled to show his heavy metal style*. This puts him in a difficult situation on the labour market. Therefore he needs extra financial help'. So now I can turn up at a job interview dressed in my normal clothes and just hand the interviewers this piece of paper," he said.

Someone ought to tell that man that there's a sock on his arm that's attracted to his left nipple.

It looks more like he's done something unspeakable to a ferret.

Not many people know this, but Bruce once breast fed an entire Cambodian orphanage while playing a 35 minute Blinded by the Light jam with the Big Man. True story.
