Keith Richards Dropped From “Pirates Of the Caribbean IV?”

When Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth instalment in Disney’s wildly-popular Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, hits theaters next summer, it may be missing one noteworthy castmember — Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

We hear Richards has been axed from the hotly-awaited family flick after bosses at The Mouse took offense with the musician’s newly-released memoir, Life, a book that chronicles Richards’ storied history with drugs and his feud with Stones frontman Mick Jagger. Richards played Captain Teague, the father of Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow, in the last two Pirates films.

On the pages of the book, Keith spills the deets on hisa addiction and argues that whent aken in moderation, dope is actually good for health and safe way to get stoned. He also says that he attributes his survival to drugs, and how meticulous he is about the quantity he is consuming.

He writes: “It’s not only the high quality of drugs I had that I attribute my survival to. I was very meticulous about how much I took. I’d never put more in to get a little higher. That’s where most people fuck up on drugs.”
