Keith Richards Once Shot A Golf Ball Out Of A Gun
In a new autobiography from Rolling Stones sax player Bobby Keys, called Every Day Is Saturday Night (via NME, Keys said that Keith Richards once shot a golf ball out a gun after it landed in his breakfast.
The incident happened in the 1990s when the band were staying at a hotel with an adjoining golf course. Keys wrote: “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 fucking breakfast!. He was gettin’ ready to eat his eggs Benedict.“
