ROLLING Stone Keith Richards last night said he was "amazed and delighted" to discover he was in the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie after attending its star-studded premiere in Hollywood.
"I was a big fan of the first two Pirates films so I was obviously thrilled to be invited to the screening and looking forward to some free JD and cokes afterwards," said the ageing rocker.
"I got off to sleep right away as normal but when I was woken up by some loud bangs I started to get this really freaky sense of having seen the film before.
"Initially, like everyone else, I just put it down to Disney running out of ideas after milking the franchise for every drop.
"But then a figure loomed into shot who looked incredibly familiar and I realised, eventually, that it was me.
"At this point it all came flooding back, and it dawned on me that the three-day party I thought I was at in the Bahamas last year was actually the Pirates’ film shoot."
Nor was this the only major revelation on the night for the famously hard living Rolling Stones guitarist. "It appears that I am also Johnny Depp’s dad," said Keith, who described himself as overjoyed at the latest addition to his family.
"Johnny is a real talent, a chip off the old block and I could not be prouder. I just wish I could have been there at the birth, or remember being there at the conception," he said.
