1. 'Keith Richards Killed My Orchid'

    One living thing did not survive Keith Richards’ visit to the New York Public Library in late October - an orchid in the office of Cullman Center Deputy Director Marie d’Origny. While Keef was waiting ‘backstage’ in the center before the talk, he unexpectedly lit up a cigarette in Marie’s office, and grabbed the clay saucer underneath the orchid for a makeshift ash tray. He then asked for the window to be open, sending a chill through the office. Between the cold and the smoke, the little orchid never stood a chance. RIP, sweet flower. The good news is Keith felt sort of bad about smoking in the first place and signed the “ash tray” without anyone asking (see image). So c’mon - you have to have sympathy for the devil. Meanwhile, want to cheer Marie up? Go to one of Cullman’s amazing conversations!!
