Keith Richards defends heroin use

Jun 14 2013, 11:24am CDT | by

Keith Richards has defended his use of heroin.

The 69-year-old Rolling Stones rocker - known for hits including 'Angie' and 'Brown Sugar' - said the deadly class A drug, which he gave up taking regularly over thirty years ago, was part of his "protestant work ethic" and helped him write songs.

He told Men's Journal: "I've got to confess, I was very interested in what I could take and what I could do.

"I looked upon the body as a laboratory - I used to throw in this chemical and then that one to see what would happen; I was intrigued by that. What one would work against another; I've got a bit of an alchemist in me that way. But all experiments must come to an end."

Keith doesn't believe the drug use did any damage, claiming it made actually him work harder.

He continued: "If I stayed awake I got a few more songs out of it. It's like [former UK Prime Minister Winston] Churchill said about alcohol, 'Believe me - I've taken a lot more out of alcohol than it's ever taken out of me!' And I kind of feel the same way about the dope and stuff. I've got something out of it. Might've pissed off a lot of people!"

Keith also said he "hates" rehab clinics and instead preferred to cut back on substances instead of "giving stuff up."

Paulina Porizkova In A Bikini

Jul 22 2014 10:35am CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Paulina Porizkova is some miracle of modern science. She’s the Dennis Quaid of chicks. I don’t think she’s shooting Human Growth Hormones into her eye sockets like Dennis and Sean Penn at their ghoulish cocoon swim parties. It’s just genetics. I wish I could build a time machine to go back to 1984 and masturbate over her teen photos in Sports Illustrated.  When I was there I’d parlay a bet that Keith Richards would still be alive in 2014 and that the young governor of Arkan ...
