Richards recalled his early days with his Rolling Stones bandmate whom he thought was 'very difficult' to be friends with due to his possessiveness.

has struggled to maintain his relationship with Sir through the years, insisting the singer is often overbearingly "possessive" of their friendship. musician is releasing a new autobiography, "Life", in which he details his ups and downs with the frontman, who he met at school.

Richards admits the singer is often jealous of his other pals, which makes it "very difficult to be his friend". In the book, Richards writes, "I've no doubt in retrospect that Mick was very jealous of me having other male friends."

"Maybe his exclusivity is bound up with his own siege mentality. Or maybe he thinks he is trying to protect me: 'What does that a**hole want from Keith?' But quite honestly I can't put my finger on it. Because I love the man dearly; I'm still his mate. But he makes it very difficult to be his friend."
