Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today's top gossip:

Keith Richards has given up booze. The legendary drinker – who once claimed he'd outlived several doctors who told him to stop – hasn't had a drink in four months. The move reportedly stems from Richards witnessing his Rolling Stones bandmate Ronnie Wood's public battle against booze, and taking stock of his own life. A source said that after a lifetime of hellraising, Richards "has started to feel for the first time like it might do him some good to give up the booze for a while" (The Sun).

From the papers:

Amy Winehouse "blew up" her north London home after she fused the electrics by playing loud music. She's moved into a hotel while the problem gets fixed (Daily Star).

Ronan Keating is moving to Hollywood – and taking acting. He's already had a casting for The Hobbit (The Sun).

Jay-Z has invited the entire Arsenal team out to New York to have lunch with him if they win the Premier League this year (The Sun).

Ronnie Wood partied with a unknown woman at London's 100 Club and Automat (Daily Star).
