Frankfurter

Richards has become an icon of excess during his more than four decades as a rock star. It is claimed he once kicked a serious heroin habit by having his entire blood supply replaced in a Swiss clinic. According to Richards, it is a "super legend and just as long-lived as I am. But it is rubbish."
However, he is known to be more than a little accident prone. According to bandmate Ron Wood, he once slipped on a frankfurter lobbed on stage while playing a concert in Frankfurt, Germany. "Even more ridiculously," Richards has been quoted as saying, "two days later in Hamburg, I slipped on a hamburger. It's absolutely true."
In 1998, the band had to delay a tour after Richards fell off a ladder while trying to retrieve a book in the library of his Connecticut home.

I was at that Frankurt gig and very close to the stage, I've mentioned it before,
but I never spotted a Franfurter sausage on stage.
My impression was that he was absolutely stoned.

Or perhaps you're just feeling guilty?
Front row? Hungry after all the queing?
Hard to hold the Frankfurter along with your photocamera?
