Keith Richards Responds to Mick Jagger Illness, Rolling Stones Tour Postponement: "Things...

Keith Richards has responded on Twitter to news of Mick Jagger's illness and the postponement of the Rolling Stones' upcoming tour.

Richards writes: "A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon. Mick, we are always there for you!"

Ironically, it's Richards whose health has always been called into question, not Jagger. Richards, whose love of drink and drug is legendary, has somehow–and wonderfully– managed to keep going despite all odds. It was Jagger who was into health and well being.

The Stones have also escaped and major health issues up til now, which is certainly against the norm for men of their ages.

Jagger's announcement today, and even Richards'response, suggests that Mick may be suffering from any number of common illnesses for a man of his actual age (75). Knowing Mick he's in New York getting treatment. Everyone is hoping for a quick and painless recovery, whatever the problem.

I think in the case of Keith Richards, all that drugs and alcohol has leapfrogged past "inebriation" and into "preservation".

Even "common" illnesses are dangerous at that age. Hoping for the best.

Keith is hardcore old school... And it shows.

It will continue to show in the next millennia, as well, when he's watching the new year countdown with champagne in hand and his 45th generation grandchildren all around him.

55 years (at least) of partying can be transformative.

Richards is living proof that for some what doesn't kill you can make you stronger.

I think it was Hunter S. Thompson who once said:

"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."


And who also said:

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”


Well, that was the '60s, a much more 'innocent' era in the sense that there weren't things like Fentanyl etc on the street that could kill a person within seconds.

Would seem that all the Drugs he has taken over the years have had an embalming effect.

Richards looks like mother Bates.

He was meant to live a long life, no matter what he did to screw with the hand he was dealt.

Jerry Garcia passed away two days after entering rehab for heroin addiction. The shock of sobriety is probably what killed him.

Mick Jagger is going to have heart surgery. One report says that he is flying to the US for the operation. A man his age flying thousands of miles in his condition? I would be surprised his doctors cleared him for travel.

Also, I have seen Zombies(movie of coarse) that looked more alive than him.

I would think with all his cash he could get the highest level of care anywhere in the world, why does he feel the need to travel to the U.S. and possibly risk his life?

Probably because he would die before Britain's NHS could even schedule a check-up.
