A man who was hoping to supply Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards with explosives for his entertainment has been arraigned on 112 counts of illegal possession of explosives, reckless endangerment, and manufacture of bombs.

Joseph Callahan was arrested earlier this month following a police raid on his Connecticut mansion, where officers uncovered an arsenal of weapons and bomb-making equipment.

The 69-year-old told police he was in the process of building an explosive device for Richards, but failed to make it clear why.

In court on Wednesday, his lawyer explained Callahan was making the bomb in the event he met the rocker after learning Richards was a fan of big bangs.

The case was continued to next month.
