Faithfull admits she's still thrilled every time she meets Richards and only wishes their romance was more than a one-night stand.
She tells America's alternative rock magazine HARP, "My night with Keith was wonderful but it was just one night so it's a completely idealised, great f**k.
"We have nothing to worry about, when we see each other we're just delighted.
"I don't see all the stuff other people see. To me he's still the same, honestly - I see that beautiful 24-year-old man. And that's what I will always see.
"It was Keith's idea that I go with Mick. He thought it would be good for the band. And instead of saying, `But I love you,' I said, `OK.'
"I didn't really love Mick when I was first with him, I was just obeying Keith."27/12/2004 01:37
