In the first few seconds of seeing a Rolling Stone up close or even being privileged enough to meet one.What sort of things were ya' thinking?
I was at a party in NYC with Keith Richards and was standing right next to him. The thing that struck me was how physically small he was. Not just thin, but also fairly short...around 5'8". I had seen him play many times before at close range but somehow he always seemed bigger onstage. I've seen lots of rock stars up close over the years and many of them are shorter in person than they appear onstage or on television.
The closest I ever came to an actual encounter with a Stone was probably chatting with Rolling Hansie right here at IORR!
Yes, they're all just WEE little fellers! Too small for sports. That's why they join bands, ya see. For some reason, we expect them all to be at least 6'3". Larger than life.
