Guitarist of British rock legends The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards spoke in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine. He revealed the biggest difference between touring the U.S and Europe/UK.
“The difference is we used to do it in a station wagon. America was a very different place in the middle Sixties. Quite honestly, I can’t believe I’ve been around this long, man. I’ve watched this country grow up. I know it better than most Americans, because I’m older!”
Interviewer said “What do you like about playing stadiums? Are they better than playing arenas?”, Keith responded:
“I kind of like the mix. I love stadiums when the weather’s perfect, when there’s not too much wind, because you’re kind of in God’s hands. I do like to play indoors; it’s a controlled environment. But at the same time, you take chances outside. It could be pissing rain.”
“It’s a living [laughs]. Um, it’s what I do, man. Give me 50,000 people and I feel right at home. The whole band does. As Ronnie and I often say before we go on, “Let’s get onstage and get some peace and quiet.”
Rolling Stones are working on a new studio album right now. Mick Jagger has shared the process of writing session and said:
“It’s going good. I’ve got lots of stuff. I’m doing some more writing this week. And I’m always, like, messing around.
I enjoy the writing process a lot. I mean, you always think the last thing you wrote is really wonderful and sometimes they’re really not (laughs). But it’s really fun doing it and it’s really enjoyable doing new things.”
