Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards not a Donald Trump fan
Legendary Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards says he has not gotten angry about anything or anyone for 30 years — or since the last time he had to deal with Donald Trump.
“He was the promoter for us in Atlantic City during 1989’s ‘Steel Wheels Tour,’” the durable Brit told the BBC, referring to a gig at Boardwalk Hall, next door to Trump Plaza Hotel and now-defunct casino.
“It was billed as ‘Donald Trump presents the Rolling Stones’” — with Trump’s name in huge letters and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band’s name below in miniature, he said.
“I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: ‘You have to get rid of this man!’” Richards said during an interview promoting the band’s upcoming “No Filter Tour.”
“Now America has to get rid of him. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!” cracked Richards, who has lived in Weston, Connecticut, for several decades with his wife, former model Patti Hansen.
Stones frontman Mick Jagger also weighed in on the president — wondering why on earth he chose the Stones’ downbeat, drug-soaked classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” for his campaign.
“It’s a funny song for a play-out song — a drowsy ballad about drugs in Chelsea! It’s kind of weird. He couldn’t be persuaded to use something else,” Jagger said.
The tour kicks off May 17 in Dublin, followed by several UK dates and concerts in France, Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland.
