Keith Richards’ Life Allegedly Halts Rolling Stones’ Tour

Keith Richards’ jabs at Mick Jagger in his new memoir Life may hamper the Rolling Stones’ 2011 tour plans, according to the newspaper The Daily Mirror.

“Mick read Keith’s book before publication and didn’t have any great problem with it,” an article in the paper states. “It was the fact that it was all dredged up in the interview afterwards that really upset him. Many believe this is the real reason why talks in relation to the tour have broken down.” As the article states, Richards describes Jagger as “unbearable to work with” and goes on to say that his former girlfriend Marianne Faithfull had “no fun with his tiny todger.”

Fans and industry insiders alike expected the Rolling Stones to tour in 2011 and even play some of the major US festivals. As of press time the Stones have no confirmed plans, though Jagger will perform at the Grammys for the first time in his storied career this coming Sunday. The singer will pay tribute to the late soul legend Solomon Burke.

Keith Richards book was executed by Mick and he done the self deprecating of himself for publicity and to make the book slightly interesting because in Mick’s ego mind he’s the most interesting part of the book. Keith was encouraged by Sir Mick and percentage profit for Mick at the end. It must be hard for Keith to pretend he’s anything other then what he is i.e. A genuine rock star forced into unsuitable clothes for him at least to promote the book Life. Hope he can relax back into his real persona real soon – a little wiser, something of a miser “just like a rolling stone…”.

Keith! Man what a great book! I would not have expected anything else or less. Everyone I know from all backgrounds that read the book LOVED it. The whole reason I started playing Fender Telecasters is because of Keith, 40 years later I’m still listening to the Stones and playing Telecasters lol. I hope to see you guys on tour soon, I really need a live Stones fix. I hope the Stones go on forever. God bless you and your family Keith, see you on the road somewhere. PS-Who needs 6 strings anyway! Cheers, Francesco

Dan Barcode obviously wasn’t blessed with a sense of how to market his art…you’re trying too hard and write like you’re on drugs.

Love the stones BUT, don’t they ALWAYS start some drama before they announce a tour? Just sayin’ maybe some promotional thing…again?

Dan Barcan – you are a tool and Keith does not know you – please don’t envoke his name as if you do. If your music is any good it will be heard without pretending to know Keith

Having read the book and thinking it might be best book ever by musican about his life, I thought it did quite well towards Jagger. It told of a few negative sides of Mick, but anybody you have been close with as long as those two have, you are going to know their good and bad points. Keith praised Micks showmanship and that Mick did run the money when Keith was not capable of being involved.

I thought Life was one of the best books by a musician I’ve ever read. The fact that it was by someone like Keith Richards makes it one of my fave books, period. For every slight he made against Mick, he was positive two more times. The press has blown all of it up into a big fight. Those two arguing is not fresh news.
