Former NME scribe Nick Kent recently revealed that he's been aiding Richards in remembering the early '70s, when "things got really bad." Translation: the drugs worked.
But Kent goes on to reveal that a softer side of Richards emerged in front of him, one where he broke down in tears "several times," that his memories of bad times have fallen victim to suppression and that the amount of drugs consumed totaled more than "all Motley Crüe put together." We're not sure if there's any hard evidence out there on this, but, if Kent could pull together a pie chart on those numbers, we'd surely love to see it.
With the recent reissue of 'Exile on Main Street,' the Rolling Stones have been riding high -- sales-wise, that is -- and this latest revelation should only serve to fuel more interest into one of rock's most enigmatic figures.
Richard's autobiography is reportedly set to arrive in bookstores this fall.
