Keith Richards Blanks On Playing ‘Paint It Black’
Keith Richards apparently doesn’t remember how to play his [lastfm]Rolling Stones[/lastfm] hit, “Paint It Black,” according to fellow guitarist Ronnie Wood, who recently let the cat out of the bag on his radio show.
The song, which was written 1966 with help from late Stones guitarist Brian Jones, now poses problems for Richards.
“We always have this moment of hesitation where we don’t know if Keith’s going to get the intro right,” Wood said.
In other news, Richards recently revealed that he has long aspired to become a librarian, according to his upcoming autobiography. He owns thousands of books and once considered taking up professional training in order to organize them, according the Sun, but ditched the idea because it was too overwhelming.
