Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones has always had a busy life on stage. However, he also had very intense experiences in his personal life – and some of them involve the artist’s cars.
With that in mind, the Yahoo! separated some crazy stories about Keith Richards in a car. Check the selected list:
He didn’t like to fly
As the musician did not like to travel by plane, he went to the band’s concerts (in different cities) by car. He rented any car he wanted to be able to travel. One of the artist’s most famous vehicles was sold years later at an auction worth $ 549,614.
Slept behind the wheel
Keith Richards crashed the 1965 Bentley S3 Continental Flying Spur in 1976, when he fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into a tree. There were seven passengers in the car, but luckily no one was hurt. Despite this, the rocker was arrested by the police when she found acid in the pocket of the musician’s jacket. Richards sold the car in 1978.
It was thrown out of the car
In 1969, Richards was involved in another car accident. Beside his girlfriend, who was nine months pregnant, the musician exceeded the local speed limit. In the autobiography Life, the musician commented that a red light came on on the panel and “nothing worked”. With the brakes and steering off, he lost control of the car.
The artist was thrown out of the vehicle and his girlfriend had a broken collarbone.
