It seems that like death himself will have to drag Keith Richards out of playing on stage with The Rolling Stones.
Richards tells The Sun, “Life’s just too interesting to die. Anything I wanted to do had to be done -- I couldn’t slack off. And hey, there was just an awful lot of cocaine involved."
The 78-year-old guitarist adds that the band's 60 years together comes down to one key element. “I think the most important thing is that the people in the band want to stay together. That helps! We had our ups and downs, of course. But in the end we always noticed that we are more creative together."
Richards says spending that much time together means they can still play at the top of the game. "The special thing about being part of a well-rehearsed group is knowing the others so well that you can predict up to a certain point what is going to happen next."
The Stones' Sixty tour continues Sunday in Munich, Germany and then Thursday in Liverpool, England.
