Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has done more than his fair share of drugs in his day. So much so that many believe the only reason he's still alive was because of a total blood transfusion that pumped all of his toxic blood out and a fresh batch in. Richards did have a procedure that pulled the toxins from his bloodstream, and he may have played a role in starting the rumor. "Someone asked me how I cleaned up, so I told them I went to Switzerland and had my blood completely changed," Richards has said. "I was just fooling around. I opened up my jacket and said, 'How do you like my blood change?' That's all it was-a joke. I was fucking sick of answering that question." And thus a ratchet rumor was born.
