Keith: “We stopped at an old clothing shop, sort of an army surplus, in a little village on the road to Cork. We went in and this old Irishman grabbed hold of Brian’s balls and dragged Brian outside and pointed to the church tower, there’s these huge holes in it, and he said, Cromwell’s balls did that, now let me see what I’m gonna do to your balls. So Brian got his cock out and pissed all over his old overcoats and everything. We all went haring out of the shop and leapt in the car, and – he was very old, this cat – and suddenly he leapt up across the street and onto the bonnet of the car and started kicking the windscreen with his huge boots.”

Jan. 6, 1993: ‘London Tonight’ (UK TV) In an interview with Matthew Lorenzo, Bill Wyman officially announces he is officially quitting the Stones.
“I really don’t want to do it anymore. I have many special memories. It’s been wonderful. But I thought the last two tours with them were the best we have ever done, so I was quite happy to stop after that. When I joined this band, we thought we would last two or three years with a bit of luck and come out with a few shillings in our pockets. Now, here I am 30 years later, and I haven’t done any of the other important things in life.”
