The co-founder and iconic guitarist of The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, recently gave an interview in which talked about the abnormal things happening in 2020 and revealed his great fear while disclosing how he spent the summer of 2020.
As you probably know, the Rolling Stones had a highly successful tour in the summer of 2019 and they were planning on starting their next tour in May 2020. After the break of the pandemic their tour, like many others, was canceled.
After the cancelation of their tour plans, the bandmates all went their way, and Keith Richards started enjoying a different type of life. It turns out that Keith Richards was indeed scared of the virus and thus, decided to spend some time as far away from people as possible.
Richards said that he has been hiding, spending time only with his family and just a few friends so as to not get out of the protective bubble and risk anyone’s health. He mentioned that he dined in an outdoor restaurant a couple of times but as it’s colder now, that’s gone too.

It’s been pretty well controlled since but this is about the only place in the whole country where it is. 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 of 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.”

It turns out that he spent most of 2020 in his house gardening and spending some quality time with himself and his loved ones. He grew some veggies and fruits and spent a ‘normal’ year which was highly ‘un-normal‘ for the legendary guitarist.
