It may just be that his tolerance is so high that the amount needed to get him off would likely be lethal.

LSD in the sixties, fantastic. LSD in the late seventies, bland. The quality tanked when blotter acid showed up.

The Stones are older than my Mom was when she first got Geezer Frail. None of them look good, and I don't care how much you exercise or diet, if you're 75 or older, you're a skipped heartbeat away from croaking.

I have a theory that since the two guys who made basically the entire supply of the world's acid got busted in the late nineties, its had serious sociological and cultural consequences.

Keith knows what's up.

Modern stuff last a long time and you don't need as much to get an effect. Also, it doesn't taste like actual grass. You can get cheap and weak stuff... it's used for baking, these days.

Sure, I'll do it one more time...

Keith Richards is nearly eight years away from average life expectancy for a man in Great Britain
Keith has been able to afford the very best drugs his entire life
Keith has been able to afford  the very best medical care his entire life
Keith has been able to sleep in virtually every day of his life
I honestly don't think the man has touched heroin in nearly forty years

Anyway, lame lazy meme. The average hard working 60 year old carpenter who drinks four pints a day has had a far harder life than keith richards has and there's no reason he should be dead and there's no reason we should marvel that he's still alive. As far as I can tell this all started because he looked 50 when he was thirty five. He did a lot of coke and got drunk too much in his twenties and thirties - big farking deal. Who didn't?

Keith actually died somewhere around the time of the Steel Wheels tour. He just hasn't sobered up enough yet to realize it.

Damn straight.  Fitty years ago, we'd sit around and pass joints for hours.  We'd get high but.........try that shiat now and you'll melt.  Incapacitated is what you'll be with all that stuff my friends keep bringing back from Colorado and other such places.  Much stronger today.

I first smoked pot when I was almost 15, when some dude offered me a joint at a concert in 1974. Loved it, still puff today, though mainly just before concerts. I *guarantee* you that pot is a quintillion times better now than back then. Apart from the whole "buy a quarter ounce and a have to spend time picking out all the stems and seeds" thing, it's just simply stronger. The only pot I miss from the 70's is real Thai sticks, that stuff was amazing.

As for LSD, bah. By the time I got around to it in the late 70's, it was already a pale imitation of the kick-arse Owsley stuff that my older sisters took. Pro Tip: If it takes you two hits of "acid" to start having the walls melt, it's not LSD.

Keef may or not be on a maintenance dose  ala WS Burroughs. He most certainly was far sooner than 40 years a go. Start of the Steel Wheels tour in Toronto, he wouldn't go on stage until he got his methadone and an order of Shepherd's Pie from a local pub.

After Keith got busted they did the smart thing and got a rolodex of drug suppliers for every location like any other contracted talent.

I wonder (I'm sure) if he has tried molly. Because it can range anywhere from plant food to farking amazing. But, then  again, I haven't tried anything in 4 or 5 years.

Counterpoint:

Keith Moon, John Bonham, and Bon Scott died young after drinking too much
Scott Weiland died from an OD
Cliff Burton and Randy Rhoads died in crashes involving busses

Keef has done every drug, snorted his father's ashes, smokes like a chimney, drinks alcohol like they're going to go to worldwide prohibition, and fell out of a tree, and STILL is fit as a fiddle.  If he outlives health nut Mick, then my friends, God has one twisted sense of humor, and Highlanders do indeed exist.

And as an added bonus, was born during the time Hitler was trying to wipe his country off the face of the Earth.  So yeah, when WWIII inevitably breaks out, this will be the scene:

Counter counterpoint. The world is not experiencing a shortage of old drunks and almost to a person they have harder lives and far fewer resources than Keith Richards. I'm not saying keith didn't abuse his body. I'm saying old drunks who abused their bodies are a dime a dozen and keith has tons of advantages over your average old drunk.

I'm your age. Growing up I lived in a party house. I remember seeing them break up pounds of weed to find the chunk of hash bonus in it. The Thai stick was small nuggets tied (weave like) around bamboo sticks, I guess dipped in opium. I wasn't allowed to partake but I caught a few contact highs. That didn't stop me from finding my own.

I saw a few people flipping out from bad LSD trips so I never tried it. We had mescaline on the streets that I gave a go at a few times. I recall watching their eyes roll back when booting heroin so I never tried that either.

Weed was sold by finger measurement per baggie. 4 was an ounce, 2 a dime. Panama Red was about as potent as you could get. Acapulco Gold gave you a lighter buzz. Gotta give them credit today it's advanced as Hell.

I think Keef has something similar to the Mr. Burns Effect.  Except in Keef's case it's all the past drug use, rather than having every disease, that's somehow keeping him going.  This is probably why the drugs are bland, or have little to no effect any more.  He probably has some built in drug barrier that allows whatever newer stuff he ingests to simply pass through and give maybe a slight nominal high and has little to no effect to his health.

He'll probably die form a fall or some other injury rather than succumb to the drug and alcohol abuse he has endured over the years.

At this point, I don't think anything short of him shooting up weapons grade uranium will get him high anymore. Even then, he'd be sitting in the chair glowing and telling Mick to roll him a joint with some plutonium in it.

Look if I had access to swedish blood transfusion detox and whatnot ya damn right I would run the entire gamut of drugs that are both available and unavailable for recreational use and live to talk about how crappy today's drugs are.

I think Keith's issue isn't so much the drugs but the culture that the drugs are being used in.

First of all, pass a note to your sisters for me: "How ya doin'?"  I have to say that certain, "lines," of drugs were better in the late 70's, early 80's.  I guess that's how it goes for most drugs.  Over time, they get cut with cheaper and cheaper adulterations and new formulas become popular simply because they are economically viable.  "Designer drugs" existed in the 80's because they were able to scientifically able to evade a law (via a different scientific formula) not by any improvement in quality. The one constant has always been the organically grown items: mushrooms and ganja.  Weed, being the most popular and easily manipulated, has seen the most improvement.
