Keith Richards - Wormwood scrubs prison

Wormwood scrubs is a prison in west London which was originally built in 1875, it housed both male and female prisoners until 1902 when the last female prisoner was transferred to HMP Holloway. In 1994 a new hospital wing was completed and in 1996 2 of 4 wings were refurbished to modern standards, and a fifth wing completed. The prison is still in use today and currently has accommodation for 1256 prisoners.

On the 29th of June in 1967 Keith Richards was sentenced to twelve months prison for allowing drugs to be used in his Redlands home. He was taken to Wormwood scrubs prison and spent a night there before being released on bail. He also claims to have been offered hasch by another inmate during exercise time.

In an interview from the book Keith Richards: The Unauthorised Biography he described the prison this way;

"First off, neither the accommodations nor the fashion suited me at all. I like a little more room, I like the john to be in a separate area, and I hate to be woken up. The food's awful, the wine list is terribly limited and the library is abysmal."

The prison entrance was also used for the cover of the 1979 Gary Moore album Back on the streets.air max 90
