Keith Richards recalls violent golf ball incident on 'Fallon'

Keith Richards recalls violent golf ball incident on 'Fallon'

Listen to Rolling Stones on iHeartRadio

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards admits he doesn't always have the best sense of humor when he first wakes up.  The legendary rocker recalls an incident in which the Stones' longtime sax player Bobby Keys hit a golf ball into his scrambled eggs.  Richards tells NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" that having his breakfast disrupted like that sparked a violent reaction. 

The Stones will be returning to the road next month for their first extended run of dates in six years.  Richards says band members will be getting together next week to rehearse and plan out their show. 

He adds that former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor is joining the group for the trek, which he says will make it "an interesting tour all around." Keith explains that many Stones songs have multiple guitar parts, which poses a challenge for him and Ronnie Wood to deliver in concert.  He says that having a third guitarist on board really expands their options. 

The Rolling Stones will launch their "50 and Counting" North American tour in California next month.  Tickets, which range in price fro 85 to 600 dollars, are on sale now.
