Former The Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman recently discussed Mick Jagger no showing recording sessions to ‘party’ with local celebrities. Michael Jackson’s daughter recently unloaded on Mick Jagger disrespect.
Wyman told Guitar World, “It was really stupid, but even more stupid was that nobody ever turned up the same time. On a Monday, Mick Taylor, Charlie, and I might arrive. Keith would be upstairs sleeping, never appearing at the session. We’d all traveled from God knows where. Charlie was five hours away from where he stayed at my house. Piano player Nicky Hopkins often stayed by me, and when you’d get there, you’d find out that Mick Jagger had gone off partying with some local celebrities.
So, we’d just mess about, and then the next time, Mick Taylor wouldn’t be there. It would just be me, Keith and Charlie, and Mick Jagger wouldn’t turn up again, because he’d gone to Paris or someplace to buy rings for his wedding [to Bianca Perez Morena de Macias]. Then the day after that, Mick would turn up with Charlie and me, but Keith wouldn’t be there, and neither would Mick Taylor. It was like that day after day. It was bollocks—it’s a miracle that record ever came out, because it was all done in bits. The whole band was hardly ever there at the same time. It was really madness.”
Howard Stern recently discussed a member of The Rolling Stones getting cancer. Mickschix recently discussed Mick Jagger’s acting role in ‘Burnt Orange Heresy’ on IORR.org, “I just watched a lengthy trailer for the movie and Mick’s role is NOT A CAMEO, it’s quite a substantial part and all I can say is that criticizing him BEFORE you SEE the movie shows a real lack of class and support for the front man of the band you’re supposed to LOVE!
Really, you don’t even have the decency to applaud the fact that Mick is well-rounded and has a LIFE outside of the Stones…or is THAT he problem with you….you’re too narrow-minded to envision Mick having happiness outside of the band. Get over it, HE DOES OTHER THINGS and he is very good at them. No one is forcing you to see this film.
For the record, Mick was excellent in ‘The Man From Elysian Fields.’ I’m very happy in the knowledge that once the Rolling Stones do STOP performing (and I hope that day is in the distance future!), we’ll be able to see Mick expressing himself through another medium…film!”
