Friday Night Forgotten Oldie: To author, or not to author…

Would you read a book about Mick Jagger?

Would you read a book about Mick Jagger written by Jagger?

Would you purchase a book about Mick Jagger written by Jagger?

Don’t count on it.

Jagger is just not crazy about the concept that originated decades ago.

“When I started, it was in the 80’s. I was offered a lot of money and the money was the seductive part. And when I started to actually get into it, I really didn’t enjoy it.”

So what’s the problem?

“And what I didn’t enjoy was reliving my life — the detriment of living in the now,” Jagger added. “It takes a lot out of you. It takes reliving emotions, reliving friendships, reliving ups and downs…and I must say that it wasn’t the most enjoyable experience. And there wasn’t that many highs out of it.”

Ah, the good old days.

Unlike Elvis and the Beatles, I can, indeed, choose my favorite Stones song.

Veteran rocker David Crosby was recently asked, who’s better? Beatles or Stones?

Crosby went with the Fab Four.

“Mainly because of the range of stuff that they did. The Stones did have a fairly wide range that they did, but the Beatles had a much wider range of writing that they could do. And the Beatles could sing harmony. The Stones can’t do that for squat…It’s a matter of personal taste, of course. But for me, the Beatles, no question.”
