He Has A New Hobby
In a new interview with Goldmine Magazine, The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards talks about his life during the coronavirus lockdown especially since 2020 was supposed to be a busy and productive year for the band.
He’s apparently taken up a new hobby – gardening which is something that no one would probably expect from a rockstar.
He says, “I saw the garden grow – really quite unbelievable. I spent the whole summer actually admiring the garden and also doing a bit of gardening myself – watering the veggies and the stuff. I got into a more normal way of life, which is un-normal.”
He also admits that he’s afraid of contracting the virus and shares, “I’ve been in hiding, basically. Hunkering down with the family and a few friends because we have to stay in a bubble you know. I’ve been out to a restaurant with outdoor seating a couple times but now it’s getting a bit chilly so we’re eating in. Thank God the wife’s a good cook, bless her heart!”
Formed in 1962, The Rolling Stones are set to celebrate their 60th anniversary in 2022. Richards recently told BBC News that he “hadn’t even thought” about it and joked that he “might get a new wheelchair” for the celebration.
