Keith Richards never hesitates to speak his mind and tell us all what he really thinks about…well…everything. This most recent interview with Esquire is no exception. Here are his most recent musings on the Beatles iconic record, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
….No, I understand—the Beatles sounded great when they were the Beatles. But there’s not a lot of roots in that music. I think they got carried away. Why not? If you’re the Beatles in the ’60s, you just get carried away—you forget what it is you wanted to do. You’re starting to do Sgt. Pepper. Some people think it’s a genius album, but I think it’s a mishmash of rubbish, kind of like Satanic Majesties—”Oh, if you can make a load of shit, so can we.”
What do you think about Keith’s controversial comments? Do you agree? Disagree? Or is it just Keith being Keith? One thing is for sure is that Keith has never changed, and you have to respect him for that. You can read the rest of the interview at Esquire.
