Keith Richards Owes £20,000 in Library Fines
3
Keith Richards has been talking to The Sun newspaper about his love of libraries.

The guitarist notes that hanging out in his local library in Dartford, Kent, was one of his favorite past times as a teenager. "It was a place where you get a hint there was a place called civilization" he stated before admitting: "I still owe fines from about 50 years ago." According to The Sun, the outstanding fine could be somewhere in the region of £20,000.

The Rolling Stones were recently joined onstage by Dave Grohl at their gig in Anaheim, California, for a rendition of "B-Tch." This was after Bill Wyman announced that he will never play with the Stones again, because of false promises made about their 50th anniversary reunion shows:

"The nice thing was that my kids saw me on stage with the Stones," he said. "They'd asked me the December before, and I had to jam with them for three days.

"I was under the impression I was going to get really involved, but when it came to it, they only wanted me to do two songs, which was very disappointing."

    This dude's a legend but the title is clearly not the key point in this article. Why am I even pretending to be surprised...

    I'm actually not sure what the key point is. It appears to be an amalgamation of about 3 different articles (library fines, Dave Grohl, Bill Wyman).

Thank god he wasn't more involved, I want him to be making another foo fighters record not touring with the Stones!!! I love the Stones but get a different drummer.

    Buzzkill: library fines are usually capped at a relatively low dollar amount, like a little bit over the cost of the book.

    Maybe he keeps the books so he can feel young? After all they're the only thing older than he is!

    In all honesty, I'm a bit bored of him.

    No, you're not bored of him (the person/musician), you're bored of his name being put in any context possible within the UG news section, regardless of how vague a connection it has with the point of the article...

    That's what I meant of course, thanks for explaining that in my stead as opposed to leaving me to be shot down in flames, good sir!
