The night the Rolling Stones fired Trump: Keith Richards once pulled a knife to get him out of Atlantic City venue

Mod: I've always been a Rolling Stones fan. There's certainly no reason to stop.

The night the Rolling Stones fired Trump: Keith Richards once pulled a knife to get him out of Atlantic City venue (Raw Story link): In 1989, The Rolling Stones’ original members ended their seven-year hiatus and embarked on an ambitious and profitable 115-show tour of Europe and North America. The American leg, named after their comeback album “Steel Wheels,” began in August in Philadelphia and ended in December in Atlantic City.

The final show, at the Boardwalk Hall (f.k.a Convention Center), aired on pay-per-view and — like the Miss America Pageant, also held at the Hall — was to be sponsored by the adjacent Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.

Even in the late-‘80s, however, The Stones didn’t want to be associated with Trump. So they cut a deal with him, stipulating he wouldn’t be involved in any promotional capacity outside of Atlantic City and, amazingly, wouldn’t be allowed at the show itself.

This story, told last summer and resurfaced on social media this week, illustrates just how deep the animosity went.

On the night of the event, “I get word that I have to come to the press room in the next building,” Michael Cohl, the tour’s promoter, told Pollstar last August. “I run to the press room in the next building and what do you think is happening? There’s Donald Trump giving a press conference, in our room!”

According to Cohl, Trump then tried to convince him that “they begged me to go up, Michael.”

“Stop it,” Cohl replied. “Don’t make a liar of yourself.”

Thinking he’d extinguished the fire, Cohl returned to the dressing room only to get word five minutes later that Trump (being Trump) had found his way back to the mic. “Donald,” Cohl pleaded. “I don’t know if I can control this. Stop it.”

Again to the dressing room. Again word that Trump is promoting. This time guitarist Keith Richards offered his help:

Keith pulls out his knife and slams it on the table and says, ‘What the hell do I have you for? Do I have to go over there and fire him myself? One of us is leaving the building – either him, or us.’”

“One of two things is going to happen,” Cohl told Trump. “You’re going to leave the building and, at 6:40, The Rolling Stones are going to speak on CBS News, or you’re not going to leave the building and I’m going to go on and do an interview to explain to the world why the pay-per-view was canceled”

Then, while literally telling Donald Trump “You’re fired,” Cohl noticed Trump’s “three shtarkers he’s with, in trench coats, two of them are putting on gloves and the other one is putting on brass knuckles.”

Cohl signaled his head of security, who “got 40 of the crew with tire irons and hockey sticks and screwdrivers,” effectively sending off Trump and his goons.

“And that was the night I fired Donald Trump,” Cohl concluded.

  3. The Stones were just as big dicks as Trump back in the day, all egos. Only Trump was sleeping with the women from his beauty pageant while Mick and Keith were sleeping with each other, Rock n Roll baby.

  8. Sympathy for the Devil ... the latter part of the last century women were given the right to control their sexual destiny by the use of the pill. This had astounding social repercussions. That coupled with the counterculture revolution opened the door for all sorts of social experimentation. People like Trump, Rush Limbaugh, and Newt Gingrich worked very hard to try to fit into this new free age. Alas, having no social or moral grounding, these poor right wing fanatics couldn't get laid no matter what they tried. What we see is the end result of politics mixed up with a heady brew of id driven sexuality. With that it's a wonder we have any freedoms left as a society. Good luck to you all.
