Oddly enough, this photo predates his heroin habit.

Kids, this is how you'll end up if you keep listening to that rock and roll music.

I have read that this is one of Annie Leibowitz's Very Earliest efforts.

I wonder if it was taken before or after K.R.'s performance.

Legend.

Isn't this the 1972 tour? Wasn't the heroin already there?

I've read that the heroin use began precisely on July 4, 1972. The Stones played RFK that day. I was there, and they weren't very good. I've always wondered if Keith shot up before the show, and that's why they were bad, or if he shot up after the show, because they were so bad. Or maybe it's just a coincidence.

Shouldn't the caption be "Keith Richards medicates"?

If you had wagered $ once upon a time that both Keith Richards and Lou Reed would outlive Michael Jackson, I would have felt like I was taking candy from a baby.

Today? Not so much.
