The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards told NME in a new interview that he had ‘bust ups’ with Mick Jagger in the past.
“We’re working on the album [Honk]. We’ve got the first bits done and I’m looking forward to getting back in after this tour. Charlie Watts is playing his arse off! He’s absolutely amazing. It’s indescribable to find a drummer like Charlie Watts, exceptionally brilliant.
I can never praise Charlie enough and I can praise Mick Jagger 99% of the time, turning his attention to the singer.
Mick knows what I mean and he’ll say the same about me. Things happen between Mick and me because it’s just two guys working together. You only hear about the odd bust-up. I love the man 99% of the time.
It was my first time fronting the whole thing Usually, this is Mick’s job and suddenly I understood a lot more about the dynamics of being a frontman.
I understood the pressure. My feelings towards Mick became, ‘Yeah, I get it, man.”
The Rolling Stones announced on Saturday, “Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming US / Canada tour dates. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.”
“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment. The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.”
