Plus the guitarist talks about stealing his band-mate's girlfriends
The Rolling Stones‘ Keith Richards has revealed that the number of women Mick Jagger and himself shared was “a stable” -and has also discussed the sexuality of his bandmate.
The guitarist told GQ that after Jagger stole his girlfriend Anita Pallenberg in the Sixties he made a point of trying to steal the singer’s women for revenge.
Richards said: “I’ve stolen quite a few off of him and, uh, he’s nudged his way into my lot, but not significantly. After the Anita thing, I made a point of stealing every bitch he had.”
Referring to the number of women the two had shared, he said: “After Marianne [Faithfull], it’s a stable.”
Richards also discussed Jagger‘s sexuality, saying: “I really have no idea if anyone ever shoved it up the shitter. I’m not there watching it every day. But there was, at the time, a load of excruciatingly painful campness that went on.”
