KEITH RICHARDS was asked what he thinks of artists today like ADELE and RIHANNA using so many songwriters. His answer was typical Keith . . . quote, “They can’t rely on themselves, can they?”
Not surprisingly, Keith doesn’t have a very positive take on the industry these days. He said, quote, “It goes around in cycles. We’re in the midst of a heavy-duty ‘showbiz’ period, even stronger than when we killed it last time.
“‘The X Factor’ and all this competition [stuff]. It’s just for people who want to be famous. Well, if it’s fame you want, good luck. You’d better learn to live with it.”
