(Newser) – Rolling Stones mummy Keith Richards is still kicking, and GQ got him talking about—what else?—sex, drugs and rock 'n roll in his Manhattan "office" while he downed a vodka on the rocks. Richards doesn't debunk any myths, certainly. "It wasn't just boinky-boinky" with the groupies, he said. "They used to rub Vicks on your chest if you had a cold."

And Mick Jagger? They may now share "a stable" number of women, but after Jagger slept with the mother of Richards' three kids in the 60s, Keith "made a point of stealing" every woman Mick had. When asked how gay Jagger might've been "at his gayest" in the 1980s, Richards dismissed it as "a load of excruciatingly painful campness."
