Keith’s “white palace” villa on the beach in Villefranche, France, which he rented for $2,400 a week in 1971. The Stones brought a mobile recording unit to Keith’s house, and they also built a studio in his basement. All of the Stones, plus ladies, moved into the house, and Keith offended them when he gave each Stone a weekly bill for $200 rent during the recording of EXILE ON MAIN ST. Eventually the French police had the house under observation the entire time Keith lived there and later on, while he and the rest of the Stones were recording in Jamaica, a warrant was issued for their arrests, claiming drug use in the house. But all of the Stones testified that it was Keith’s house and they were innocent of the charges.
