Keith Richards. The master behind some of the most iconic riffs and songs is also legendary for his drug habit. Picking some of his favorite songs on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, Keith said, “It was something that I had to stop because I realized there are experiments that go on too long. Some people can handle things and other people can’t. If the drugs become more important than the music, then you’ve lost the battle.” He added that he never sat down to discuss the dangers of drugs with any of his four children. "None of my kids have shown any interest in drugs at all." Asked if they were "watching and learning" from their father, he said, "I think maybe they were." In 2011, Keith's third child, daughter Theodora, was arrested for vandalism, and police found marijuana and another controlled substance in her possession.
