Beach at Parrot Cay

Beach at Parrot Cay

Not to make light of Eric Clapton’s famous rehab center, Crossroads, in Antigua, but the Caribbean beaches really do seem like the place that rock stars go to detox.  Or at least sleep…

Case in point: Bono and the rest of the U2 crew just returned from Rosewood Mayakobá, where they took a few days’ breather from their concert tour (next stop: Pasadena on Sunday, October 25; the concert will be streaming live on YouTube).  Paul McCartney was there last winter, no doubt taking a well-deserved break.  It’s Friday, so we can’t think of a good “When I’m Sixty-Four” joke to insert here…there has to be one.

If you’re more a Stones person than a Beatles person, it’s worth noting that Keith Richards regularly appears at Parrot Cay, where he owns a villa, to soak up the Vitamin D and all those healthful effects of the salty ocean.   Sometimes his assistant comes too, with her dog named Ruby Tuesday.
