Jagger: Keith’s book is tedious

By | Published on Friday 10 December 2010

Mick Jagger has said that he thinks Keith Richards’ autobiography is “tedious”. I wish he’d said sooner, I’ve just bought it for a friend for Christmas. Actually, I think he was referring to autobiographies in general, which ruins several Christmas presents. Thanks, Mick. Thanks for ruining Christmas.

Jagger told the New York Times: “Personally, I think it’s really quite tedious raking over the past. Mostly, people only do it for the money. You don’t want to end up like some old footballer in a pub, talking about how he made the cross in the cup final in 1964”.

Some of the tediousness in Richards’ book includes accusations that Jagger is an “unbearable” egomaniac who has made various bad decisions on the band’s behalf and has a “tiny todger”.
