Jagger stop being a prat

I forgot to add this to my previous blog…

 

I am an avid Rolling Stones fan. I have been for as long as I can remember and they have a special place for me as well because they are my mum’s heroes. So I say this with great reluctance…but Mick Jagger will you stop being such an utter prat all the time? I read in the Independent recently about the US tour not going so well in terms of ticket sales because, amazingly, people didn’t want to pay £400 or whatever ridiculous amount it was for a ticket to see a band who are, let’s be fair, not exactly at their peak (although still well worth seeing I do admit). I mean how much money do these guys need? Their tours are far and away the highest grossing tours in history so I can’t believe they’re exactly badly off…

 

Then Jagger excelled himself recently. The Stones are headlining Glastonbury this year and are apparently unwilling to let the BBC film the set in case it’s not that good. I’m sorry, if you are a professional musician and headlining the biggest music festival in the country you bloody well should be good! And if you let yourself down on the night, that is your problem. Get over yourself Mick – if you ain’t good enough to sing anymore then don’t. If you think you are, take what’s coming. I mean one of the excuses I’ve heard is ‘anything could happen, what if the weather’s bad?’. What if the ruddy weather’s bad?! Who cares?! This is the biggest band still going with hits like Satisfaction, Honky Tonk Women and Jumpin Jack Flash – are you seriously telling me they wouldn’t be able to enthuse thousands of people singing along even if it was a bit wet?
