Longtime Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards said he’s been drinking less and less over the past year and finally just “pulled the plug on it.”
The Stones guitarist and founding band member, who turns 75 next week, told Rolling Stone magazine, “I just got fed up with it.”
He said he still has a glass of wine or a beer on occasion, but that he’s given up the harder stuff.
“It was time to quit,” Richards said. “Just like all the other stuff.”
“I don’t notice any difference really – except for I don’t drink. I wasn’t feeling [right]. I’ve done it. I didn’t want that anymore,” he said.
Richards, who survived a cancer scare in 2010, talked with Rolling Stone ahead of the band’s North American leg of the “No Filter” tour, which kicks off next year in Miami.
The guitarist for the popular death metal band Cannibal Corpse was arrested Monday near his home in Tampa after he broke into a home and attacked a deputy, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies said Pat O'Brien, 53, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and burglary after he broke into a home next to the Northdale Golf and Tennis Club in Tampa and pushed a woman to the ground.
The Sheriff’s Office said in a release that O'Brien ran toward a responding deputy with a knife. The release said the deputy subdued O'Brien with a stun gun.
Authorities said O'Brien did not know the residents in the home.
Oddly, his nearby home on the 16000 block of Norwood Drive was on fire Monday night, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue said. O’Brien’s home contained numerous weapons, ammunition and flame throwers, Fire Rescue said.
“Crews arrived at the one-story home in the 16000 block of Norwood Dr. to find flames coming through the roof of the structure,” Fire Rescue wrote in a Facebook post.
Officials said the ammunition was exploding due to the flames.
“It took us nearly an hour to bring this one under control. Thankfully, there were no injuries,” Fire Rescue said.
The HCSO bomb squad conducted a precautionary check of O’Brien’s home Tuesday morning.
The cause of the fire is unknown.
O'Brien is being held on $50,000 bail.

If you attended a Taylor Swift concert recently then your face could have been scanned to detect if you are a Taylor Swift stalker.
During Swift’s 2018 “Reputation” tour a kiosk showing rehearsal footage from Swift’s Rose Bowl and Madison Square Garden performance used facial recognition software that took a picture of the concertgoer as they viewed the rehearsal footage.
The pictures were then sent to a control center in Nashville where they were analyzed. There’s no word on if concertgoers own the images or how long the pictures will be kept at the control center.
Do you think this is a good idea to keep artists safe or is it an invasion of a person’s privacy?

Russian media say a contraption presented by Russian state television as a high-tech robot was in fact a man in a commercially available robot costume.
The footage was shot at a high-tech show in the city of Yaroslavl that opened Tuesday, featuring "Boris the Robot." Forum organizers used Boris to enliven the event, having him dance to a pop song.
But a crew for Russian state television apparently thought Boris was real, and used footage of him dancing and speaking as an example of Russian technological prowess.
Online TJournal noted the lack of sensors, human-like movements and other discrepancies, and revealed that Boris was in fact a human clad in a costume sold under the name Alyosha by the Russian company Show Robots.
Ferenc Kosa, winner of the best director award at the 1967 Cannes film festival, has died at 81, the Hungarian Academy of Arts said Wednesday.
Kosa was recognized in Cannes for "Ten Thousand Days," about the travails of a Hungarian peasant family from the 1930s onward. The film was banned for a few years by officials in communist Hungary because of its references to the 1956 anti-Soviet revolution.
"Through his talent and commitment, (Kosa) played a defining role in the renovation of the Hungarian film artistry of the era," the Hungarian Academy of Arts said. "'Ten Thousand Days' belongs by now to the classical assets of not just Hungarian, but universal film history."
Kosa co-wrote many of his scripts with poet and author Sandor Csoori and often worked with cinematographer Sandor Sara. Among the trio's works are "Ten Thousand Days," ''Judgment" (1970) and "Snowfall" (1974).
"Kuldetes" ("Mission"), his 1977 portrait of Andras Balczo, winner of a total of three gold and two silver medals in the modern pentathlon at three Olympic Games, was a big success in Hungary but later banned for its criticism of the communist system.
Upon Hungary's return to democracy in 1990, Kosa was a founder of the Socialist Party and a parliamentary lawmaker from 1990 to 2006. He played a key role in drafting Hungary's film and media laws, since greatly amended.
Kosa was born in Nyiregyhaza, northeastern Hungary, on Nov. 21, 1937.
More than a month after welcoming her first child, former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore is sharing Brooklyn Doris Daly with the world.
Moore, 47, shared the first photo of her “miracle baby” in the latest issue of People, which she also posted on her Instagram page.
“I finally have everything I’ve dreamed of,” Moore told the magazine. “She’s so perfect in so many ways. This little angel … so beautiful. I feel so blessed. It’s all been so worth it.”
The journey to get pregnant was not an easy one for the former Miss USA, who married New York restaurateur Marc Daly, 48, in St. Lucia in June 2017.
“There were so many scares along the way,” Moore said. “We held our breath every time we went to the doctor.”
With Moore being over the age of 40, her pregnancy was high-risk. People reported that doctors worried she had a false pregnancy when they couldn’t see the baby’s skeleton at the first ultrasound. She had pre-eclampsia in late October, which caused her to have extreme fluid retention and high blood pressure. Her condition worsened, and she was induced for labor.
“They told me, ‘Your condition is worsening so get your bags and go straight to the hospital, you’re delivering today,’” Moore said.
Daly flew in from New York and was by his wife’s side. Twelve hours after being hospitalized, Brooklyn was delivered via cesarean section, but the process took three hours.
“They couldn’t get the baby out,” she said. “There were all these complications and they knew if they cut into a fibroid, I could potentially bleed out and die. So they ended up cutting me vertically, too, to just get the baby out and make sure I survived the surgery. They were so scared they were going to lose me.”
Though her daughter was born six weeks premature, Moore says it was all worth it.
“Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong, but she’s such a tough baby; so determined,” Moore said. “And every step of the way, she kept surviving and getting stronger. She’s my miracle baby. There’s no other way to describe it. She’s my miracle baby.”
Brooklyn is the couple’s first child together.
