Keith Richards went to see the boxing fight at the Madison Square Garden on Saturday, and could be seen on TV as well, sitting ringside. Someone said Ronnie was there too... Mick on the other hand stayed in Philadelphia, and surprised everyone at the Crew Band party at the Trocadero by showing up for 15 minutes or so, late. Needless to say, the Crew Band were all touched by his visit, and so were all the fans and friends who were there, did some photos, autographs etc. No appearance by Mick though...
