The Rolling Stones Chase The Voodoo Down

Harvey Kubernik, Musician, October 1997

"MY WHOLE behavior with the Rolling Stones is governed by my first encounter with Keith," recalls Don Was. "He sent me a fax before we did Voodoo Lounge: 'Be in Dublin in three weeks.' I wrote back, 'What are the songs?' And by fax he says, 'That's for me to know and you to find out. Just remember, when you get to Dublin, improvise, adapt, and overcome. P. Fuckin' S.: Don't paint yourself into a corner'."
