Angie is a tale of lost love and dreams.
You may be familiar with this tune by one of the greatest rock bands of all time. But who is the song about?
We’ll dust off our rocking shoes and dive into this song’s story.
“Angie” refers to various hard drugs in British slang. Keith once said that the song is a goodbye to heroin. Allegedly, he came up with the name of the song in Switzerland, where he was in rehab.
Richards cleared it up in his 2010 autobiography. He says he was in rehab while his wife, Anita Pallenberg, was down the road having their daughter, Angela.
