Funny stuff, actually,

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is a "power freak" who is also a "bit vain", bandmate Keith Richards said in an interview set to be published Thursday.
Speaking to Uncut magazine in an interview to promote a Martin Scorsese documentary about the band, "Shine A Light", the guitarist also said he would have told his younger self to "lay off" drugs.

"Mick's a maniac. He can't get up in the morning without knowing immediately who he's going to call," the 64-year-old Richards said.

"Meanwhile, I just go 'Thank God I'm awake' and wait for three or four hours before I do anything. He is a power freak and there's nothing we can do about it. I don't want to do anything about it. Let him bugger about. It doesn't make any difference to what we do."

Addressing Jagger's on-stage presence, Richards told the magazine, "Excuse me while I laugh. He's a bit vain, let's put it like that," before adding: "We want a vain bloke up there, don't we? Meanwhile, the band can go to work. Vanity will not carry a band. But a band can carry vanity."

Richards was also asked what message he would want to send to his younger self, to which he responded: "I'd have said 'Lay off the dope.' That's my advice now to all younger members who are into this sort of thing -- oh, give it up, it ain't really worth it.

"I know the fascination, but it ain't worth it, pal."

In the interview, he also belittled Led Zeppelin's December one-off reunion gig, telling Uncut: "They had one? Well, well done Jimmy (Page) and Robert (Plant). F**k off. Stairway To Heaven don't make it for me, baby."

I know his past/history, but to me, the man exudes cool. Even more now with age.

I think that comment toward Led Zep is more comedy than serious. The Stones lent their mobile recording studio to Zep a great deal in the late 60s & early 70s. Zep recorded some great tunes in it. Much of Led Zep II and III were recorded in it.

In the Rolling Stone interview with Keith and Johnny Depp when they were filming "Pirates", the interviewer mentions that megaproducer Jerry Bruckheimer visited the set the day before. Keith's response? "Big f@#$in' deal - I've seen 'em come and go, baby".

Keith, now he's "The Man"!!!
He defines cool.

I once heard someone say after a nuclear war, the only thing left
would be cockroachs and Keith Richards.

Nice article. Thanks Derek!

He's one cat I'd loved to just hang with for a few hours or two. The stories he could tell. I love that footage where he and Ron Wood toss the TV over the balcony wall. You just know they've had a blast over the years. Now, his autobiography would be one for the ages. Love his candor and attitude. He's what a rock star used to be.
