March 18, 1965: Mick, Brian and Bill were fined £5 ($8.50) after urinating in a public place, following an incident that took place at a petrol station after the Stones gig at the ABC Theatre in Romford, Essex, England.
Keith, on Bill’s bladder: “The funniest thing happened. One night coming back from a gig in North London, Bill Wyman, who has this prodigious bladder, decided he wanted to have a pee. So we told the driver to stop. The car is full up with people and a few other people say, Yeah, I could get into that. Let’s take a pee. So we leap out and we had chosen a gas station that looked closed but it wasn’t. There we are, up against the wall, spraying away. And suddenly this guy steps out. And a cop flashes his torch on Bill’s cock and says, All right. What you up to then? And that was it. The next day it was all in the papers. Bill was accused and Brian was accused of insulting language. Because what they did them for was not peeing but for trespassing.”

Mick, Keith and Ronnie (March 18, 2017):

Chuck you were amazing & your music is engraved inside us forever.”
