Sources claim that famous rocker Keith Richards, legendary guitarist with the Rolling Stones, has given up drinking alcohol, having abstained from imbibing for four months now. The UK Sun, quoting a friend of the guitarist, admitted “There’s no guarantees that he will stay off it, but he’s doing really well so far.” The story also appeared at the website LondonNet.
Keith’s change of heart is apparently in response to the wild antics of fellow guitarist, Ron Wood, who left his wife Jo last year for a “teenage lover” (actually 20 when they began dating) named Katia Ivanova. The relationship lasted only a year before he subsequently dumped Ivanova after an alcohol fueled argument. Wood was also arrested during one such dispute in December of last year, facing assault charges and prompting Ivanova to describe Wood to the press as an alcoholic “evil goblin king.”
Not caring to follow suit, Richards has apparently changed his ways for the better; but will it last?
