There's nothing we love more than photos of rock stars doing domestic chores (such as Iggy Pop vacuuming his apartment). And there's no rock star we love more than Keith Richards. The photo below, taken by Ken Regan in 1975, shows Keef cooking in Andy Warhol's house in Montauk, where the band were staying at various points that decade (they also started writing "Memory Motel" there). Montauk was cool long before the hipsters took over.

Among the other famous guests to stay at Warhol's five-home Eothen estate: Jackie Onasis, Lee Radziwill, Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall, Liza Minelli, Liz Taylor, John Lennon, and John Phillips. There's been a lot of Rolling Stones news lately: they have a new greatest hits album coming (with two new recordings), there's a new documentary premiering on HBO in November, and they're rumored to be playing a few live shows to celebrate their 50th anniversary (including two at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn).
For the most part, Richards—the only man who could turn the New York Public Library into his own personal smoking den—has been relatively quiet since the release of his biography Life a few years ago. Recently, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan revealed that he'd "heard through the grapevine" that Keef is a huge fan of
blue meth the show.
