Wyman: 'The Stones Are Not Wild'

Former ROLLING STONES bassist BILL WYMAN has shattered the band's legendary rock 'n' roll image by insisting they're not the intoxicated, ladies' men their reputation suggests.

The 68-year-old BROWN SUGAR star quit the legendary band in 1993 in favour of a quieter life, but he insists it wasn't a constant stream of insatiable women and endless supply of alcohol that tired him out - it was the stress of maintaining the Stones' status in rock 'n' roll.

And Wyman insists the band's care-free lifestyle was wildly exaggerated anyway.

He says, "That life that everybody else envied doesn't exist. To be in a band and be world famous is hard work. You are not lying by a pool drinking champagne, being served Beluga caviar and with a host of girls around."
