Richards' Hate For Modern Music
Legendary rocker KEITH RICHARDS refuses to listen to modern rock acts - because he doesn't like the audio quality of compact discs (CDs). The Rolling Stones guitarist insists he doesn't keep up to date with new acts because of his hatred for the modern technology, but admits he's never really liked British rock music anyway. He tells U.K. music magazine Uncut, "I don't listen to what's going on. "I don't like CDs, quite honestly. They sound tinny to me. "I've not even heard the Arctic Monkeys. I know of them but I don't know anything they've done. I didn't like Oasis, I didn't like the Sex Pistols, I don't like any of those English rock n' roll bands. They're all crap."
