Richards: 'Head Injury Drug Forced Me To Quit Cocaine'

Veteran hellraiser KEITH RICHARDS has been forced to quit cocaine, because he can't mix it with the drug doctors have prescribed him after he fell out of a tree last year (06). The 63-year-old Rolling Stone, a former heroin addict and longtime party animal, suffered a head injury when he slipped out of a palm tree in April 2006. And he now has to take a drug which cannot be taken with cocaine. Richards says, "Drugs I'm on now - the s**t I've gotta take because of the brain job, Dilantin. Means you can't take cocaine anymore. Which is fine with me. "I mean, I haven't seen coke for, like, a year and a half. Big deal. Y'know I used to like my little bump here and there after meals. But now I can't do that anymore, so I don't do it no more. "I still smoke like a f**king chimney. Get me some good weed."
