Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is so obsessed with the band's music - he watches recordings of their concerts only hours after performing.

Richards' former bandmate Bill Wyman was stunned by the rocker's dedication.

Wyman says, "I was never one hundred per cent focused on the band like Keith is.

"That's all he ever thinks about. All he does. The only music he ever plays.

"When the Stones do a live show, he tapes it and spends the whole night and the next morning playing it at full blast in his hotel room, disturbing all the guests.

"I was never like that. I'd go to bed and visit a local museum the next morning."
