Keith Richards Attacks Journalist During InterviewKeith Richards may have put his hard-living days behind him, but he's not above getting down and dirty when he feels he's been provoked.

During a recent interview with Swedish publication Aftonbladets, Richards allegedly hit reporter Markus Larsson in the head while promoting his new book 'Life' at a Paris hotel.

According to Spinner, the spat between Larsson and Richards escalated quickly, with Richards attacking Larsson only 10 minutes into their interview together. Recalling the incident, Larsson said, "He stood up and asked if we would put out the lights and settle the disagreement straight away. At first I was just surprised, I thought he was pulling my leg, but then I realized he was serious and then I felt uncomfortable and I just wanted to get out of there pretty fast."

Richards, apparently unsatisfied with simply injuring the journalist, told Larsson, "You're lucky to get out of here alive."
