Keith Richards about ‘not being’ a Rolling Stone (1988):
“Well, I’ve always been a Rolling Stone, from the start of… if you want to call it my professional career. And I never wanted to be anything else. For the last couple of years I’ve had to deal with NOT being one. At first it almost broke my heart. What I’ve learned from not being a Rolling Stone for two years probably will help me be, if the Stones come back together, which they will, will help me be… what can I say – a better Rolling Stone? (laughs) Or make the Rolling Stones better. I have a little more confidence in myself, by myself. I found that I can, if I have to, live without the Rolling Stones. And that my only job isn’t desperately trying to keep a band together that maybe needed a break.”
