Keith Richards Owes £20,000 in Library Fines
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."
