Rolling Stones apologizing on the road

by Otto Man

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger revealed to Rolling Stone magazine, that he had to get an apology from Keith Richards for his infamous penis slur as a "prerequisite" to band going on tour again. In his autobiography "Life", Richards wrote: "Marianne Faithfull had no fun with his tiny todger. I know he's got an enormous pair of balls, but it doesn't quite fill the gap." The comment was still bugging Mick, so Keith apologized for causing him any embarrassment.

Mick said: "Well, I think it was a good thing he got together with me and said that. I don't really want to talk about it apart from that, but I think it's good that he said it, and yes, it was a prerequisite, really."

But Keith has hinted that the apology may not have been entirely sincere.

He said: "We resolved it, in our own way, you know. I said I regret if I caused you any, you know, inconvenience or pain, or something. I'd say anything to get the band together, you know? I'd lie to my mother." More

Meanwhile the growing list of special guests that have been welcomed to the stage for the Rolling Stones‘ ’50 and Counting’ tour added another big name on Saturday when the band was joined by multiplatinum pop star Katy Perry for a special duet rendition of ‘Beast of Burden.’
