Unions: Bob Barro's Mistaken A... Education vs. Money Management...

Life, the autobiography of Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. On p. 338:


Mick would come and visit me occasionally in Switzerland and talk about "economic restructuring." We're sitting around half the time talking about tax lawyers! The intricacies of Dutch tax laws vis-a-vis the English tax law and the French tax law. All of these tax thieves were snapping at our heels. I was trying to wish it away. Mick was a bit more practical on that point...Mick picked up the slack; I picked up the smack.

On drugs, he does not come across to me as very regretful or apologetic. Instead of saying, "Drugs ruined my life," he says, "Do what I say, not what I do."

What you see is that, because he is rich and famous, he can get away with all sorts of things....that should not be illegal in the first place.

This is not surprising given that Mick attended the LSE for a while before his career with the Stones took off.
