We’re pretty sure Keith doesn’t know how to tweet, but that didn’t stop the Stones from taking part in their first-ever Twitter Q&A on Monday. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts — responded to a bunch of questions. Among them: Asked whether he gets nervous before a show, Mick said he doesn’t, while explaining, “I get excited before the first show of a tour or sometimes I get a bit anxious because a lot of things can go wrong.” He also noted that he has to be careful not to let his adrenaline cause him to mess up.
Keith was asked if he could teach the secret to immortality, to which he responded with his trademark smoke-and-whiskey coated laugh, “I ain’t there yet. So far so good….I think a clean and healthy life, plenty of exercise and go to church on Sunday.” We think he was serious.
Ronnie maintained that The Stones are a much better live band now than they were in the 1980s, and said the group is planning to perform a number of rarities on the upcoming tour.
