Keith Richards : No Sleep

Keith Richards : No Sleep

“Nine days without a wink,” he bragged. “I fell asleep standing up, eventually … I was just putting another cassette back on the shelf, and I was feeling great, and I turned ’round and fell asleep. I fell against the edge of the speaker. Woke up in a pool of blood, wondering, ‘Is that claret?'”

I suppose I guess for some quirk of sin Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones indulges a rejection of rest.

As for me, well, there is no guesswork about it, I will let the Lord make me lay down and be at rest.

True, I often must be made to lie down, but once settled in it is just me and the Lord.

What a grand, beautiful Shepherd that makes me lie down.

If you desire to rest if you desire peace if you hunger and thirst for righteousness then surely goodness and love will follow you…

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:1-6)

Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones can keep his sympathy for the Devil.

(rollingstone.com)—No Sleep, No Problem (1992)
“Adrenaline is the most amazing thing we have,” Richards told an interviewer in 1992. Indeed, his ability to go without sleep is almost beyond belief. He recorded “Before They Make Me Run,” from 1978’s Some Girls, in a five-day studio binge (“One [engineer] would flop under the desk and have a kip, and I’d put the other one in and keep going,” he wrote in Life). But his actual record is almost twice that long: “Nine days without a wink,” he bragged. “I fell asleep standing up, eventually … I was just putting another cassette back on the shelf, and I was feeling great, and I turned ’round and fell asleep. I fell against the edge of the speaker. Woke up in a pool of blood, wondering, ‘Is that claret?'”
