London: Keith Richards is so much in love with his guitar that he takes better care of his guitar than his guest.
The instrument occupied every chair in the sprawling home when Keith was recording ‘The Rolling Stone’ landmark ‘Exile On Main Street’ album at his chateau home in France.
The rocker``s then-girlfriend, Anita Pallenberg, still has fond memories of the decadent Nellcote home Richards turned into a recording studio and party mecca in the early 1970s.
But his pad was not well decorated, and no one had anywhere to sit.
"The whole house was majestic, very big and decaying. There was no furniture. I remember bringing home some rugs and in all the photographs you see them. We lived in that rock `n` roll hippie style; on the floor basically,” a news daily quoted Pallenberg as saying.
"Everybody was shocked to see how such a beautiful place could have all these toys on the floor and the best places were for the guitars. All the nice couches had the guitars on them! You always had to sit somewhere else. Keith does that. He`s always got the guitar in the best place with the best seat!" she added.
