Keith Richards turns to the good book

Heartwarming news as the world prepares for Holy Week: Keith Richards is working his way through The Bible:

“I read it sometimes, but it bores me to death.

“I just want to know what other people find so bloody fascinating.

“Why are they all hung up about all that ‘In the beginning’ stuff? Ah, well. At least it is stable.

“It has said the same damn thing since I was a kid.”

Really, Keith? Surely large chunks of the Bible hadn't actually happened yet when you were a kid.

We love that he's trying to understand religion by close study of the Bible and yet there's still the lingering suspicion that he hasn't got past the first three words of the first chapter yet.
