While Keith admits he felt ''disloyal'' working on 'Crosseyed Heart', his third solo LP, and the rest of the band thought he was ''crazy'', he enjoyed the experience of recording alone.
He told MOJO magazine: "It's funny because there's one part of you saying, 'You're being disloyal.'
Then you get all the other Stones thinking, 'You're crazy, why do you need to go out and do that?'
And I didn't really need to do it, I just enjoyed doing it.
It's an interesting way to work, just me and Steve [Jordan], which makes it fairly cheap. There's none of the logistics involved in getting a whole band together, and after a while it started to fall into a nice groove.''
