    Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards and his wife Patti Hansen had an interesting courtship, for lack of a better word. While the duo and their two daughters are featured on the cover of the new issue of Town & Country, things weren't always so familial, suburban and rosy between the two!

    Richards once sent Hansen "drawings in his own blood" and the pair spent five days straight awake. That is hard to do! You try to go without sleep for nearly a week and see how you fare. It ain't pretty.

    Hansen also says that famed helmer Peter Bogdanovich, who directed her in a film, wrote to her parents "alerting them of Richards’ bad influence" on their offspring. However, Richards didn't need Bogdanovich's words to make such a negative impression; he smashed his guitar on a table after he felt slighted by her parents when meeting then, and then he cried in remorse! Um, craaaaazzzzyyyy!

    Talk about a first impression and making an entrance.

    What do you think of this crazy love?
