I am a huge fan of both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.  Two great bands and a great rivalry.  But great mutual admiration, too.  This is a direct quote from Keith, from 1995 interview published in Uncut magazine:

 

"Yeah, John was a good friend of mine, I miss him.  He and I used to play a lot together, backstage, everywhere.  Johnny was a great supporter, he was not a mean man, he had a large heart if he saw something he liked.  Yeah, hats off to Johnny...miss him, sadly.  I was just down the road when he got blown away, man.  Y'know, I was like running up the road with my shooter going, 'I'll get the fucker'."

 

I'm not a violent person but I don't think I'd have stopped Keith if he'd have "gotten" MDC.

 

Next up: Keith's encounters with Paul, whom he writes about and is pictured with in Keith's mighty fine new autobiography.
