London: Rolling Stones band member Keith Richards reportedly shot a golf ball which had ruined his breakfast, according to the band’s saxophone player Bobby Keys.
The 69 year old, who is responsible for the sax solo in Brown Sugar, has revealed that once when the group was staying in a hotel while touring in the Nineties, Richards shot a golf ball with his gun after it landed in his eggs Benedict, the Sun reported.
Keys asserted in his autobiography that when he hit his ball it hooked into the trees, ricocheted, and landed in the middle of Richards breakfast. So he shot it.
He further said that Richards was holding the smoking shell that used to be his golf ball, as he stood on his patio with a pistol in his hand and said that it was a ten-stroke penalty and warned Keys that if he ever repeated the act again, he would shoot him.
