Keith And Mick Put Differences Behind Them
The Stones members talk about fixing their relationship
Their relationship has been famously strained in recent years, but it seems that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have buried the hatchet as they start to think about getting the Stones up and running again in their 50th year.
"Looking back at any career you are bound to recall both the highs and the lows," said Sir Mick in a recent interview. "In the 1980s for instance Keith and I were not communicating very well. I got very involved with the business side of the Stones, mainly because I felt no one else was interested, but it’s plain now from the book that Keith felt excluded, which is a pity. Time I reckon to move on."
"Mick’s right," added Keith. "He and I have had conversations over the last year of a kind we have not had for an extremely long time and that has been incredibly important to me.
"As far as the book goes, it was my story and it was very raw, as I meant it to be, but I know that some parts of it and some of the publicity really offended Mick and I regret that. What some of our detractors forget is that although we look like old codgers living an ocean apart we are still at bottom the boys on platform 3 at Dartford Station."
"Er ......Actually Keith it was platform 1," said Mick.
The Stones celebrate their 50th anniversary this year, although Keith maintains that 2013 is their real 50th birthday since Charlie Watts didn't join until 1963.
"We look upon 2012 as 50 years since the inception, but 50 years since the birth is actually next year.”
