The Rolling Stones began calling themselves the "World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band" in the Sixties, and few argued with them — even then. More than 40 years later, the band's music continues to sound vital. With literally scores of genre-setting hits under the group's belt — and fronted by two of rock's biggest archetypes — the Rolling Stones have done more to define the look, attitude and sound of rock & roll than any other band in the genre's history.

Mick loves Keith, you know. They’re like a married couple and they’re dearest friends. And it gave Mick a very good feeling to be able to help Keith. He did it staying with us in Woodstock. He got off heroin right on our couch. I don’t know if Keith even remembers this, but for a few weeks he was just lying there. Mick and I would feed him. And every time the clips fell off we’d hook them back on. And we’d cover him with a blanket at night…

He just slept and slept all the time. And he lost a lot of weight and when he got up he’d be so weak. And then he started getting better. You know the feeling you have when you have a child and you watch him grow? We were like Look, he’s having a bath! and Oh, did you see what he was doing today? He’s really much better.

Then when he started getting more together you could see him getting more macho. His ego thing was coming back and he’d start going out and throwing knives at trees. He started getting his temper back and we didn’t mind that because it was a good sign. And he started suntanning and started exercising and Mick talked to him a lot and it was so sweet to see. For Mick, seeing his friend get himself together is what made him really never want to take strong drugs again.
