(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." (Read more Rolling Stones stories.)
