Keith Richards has shared an interesting anecdote about President Donald Trump. The Rolling Stones guitarist recalled the last time he got angry in an interview with the BBC.
“[Trump] was the promoter for us in Atlantic City [during 1989's Steel Wheels Tour]”, Richards said. Apparently the tour was billed as 'Donald Trump presents the Rolling Stones', with the band's name in tiny lettering. That didn’t sit too well with Richards. “I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: 'You have to get rid of this man!'”, the musician recalled.
Now, Keith thinks the USA is having the same problem his band had. “Now America has to get rid of him. Don't say I didn't warn you!”, he joked. The Rolling Stones are about to embark on a world tour. Their first show is on May 17 at Croke Park in Dublin.
