Keith Richards has denied a connection between drugs and creativity, at least when it came to him.
“I have never felt it did anything for my creativity. It kept me up a lot at nights looking for the stuff,” the Rolling Stones guitarist says. “It was something that I had to stop because I realised there are experiments that go on too long. Some people can handle things and other people can’t. If the drugs become more important than the music then you’ve lost the battle.”
