Keith Richards Once Shot A Golf Ball That Landed In His Breakfast

The Rolling Stones' sax player Bobby Keys tells a host of ripsnorting yarns in his new book, Every Night's a Saturday Night, perhaps none more incredible than that of Keith Richards shooting a golf ball which Keys had the misfortune of driving into his breakfast.

The story came from a 1990s era tour which saw the band staying in a hotel next to a golf course:

"When I hit my ball it hooked into the trees, ricocheted - and landed smack dab in the middle of his breakfast. So he shot it. He's standing there on his patio with a pistol in his hand and smoke coming out of the muzzle. He was holding this smoking shell that used to be my golf ball. He said: 'That's a ten-stroke fucking penalty, and if you ever do it again I'll do the same to you! You ruined my f*****g breakfast! He was gettin' ready to eat his eggs Benedict."

Every Night's a Saturday Night is now available at all book retailers.
