Keith Richards' yearly Jagger chat

Keith Richards only talks to his Rolling Stones bandmate Sir Mick Jagger once a year.

When the band aren't touring, the guitarist admits he stays as far away from the rest of the group - singer Mick, drummer Charlie Watts and guitarist Ronnie Wood - as much as possible.

He said: "If we aren't working then we probably only talk around once a year. A few faxes, drawings and notes here and there. If you are stuck on the road for two-and-a-half years together, you've said just about everything you've got to say to one another."

Although Keith has no intention to stop touring, he admits he has lost some of his enthusiasm for huge outdoor shows - because he hates it when the weather is bad.

The 64-year-old musician - who shot to fame with The Stones in the 60s - added: "There are some great things about small rooms - that controlled environment. But outdoors, God joins the band, with wind and rain. But when we are on stage we're basically in our office."
