Hey I can relate with Mick, I can barely remember what happened last week, let alone three years ago.
According to the Times.co.uk apparently the Rolling Stones frontman wrote a 75,000-word memoir in the early 1980s, and delivered it to publisher John Blake in 2014.
When Blake attempted to get it authenticated from Jagger — after initially being told he would pen a new foreword about how the recollections were written “long ago and far away“— eventually met with the equivalent of wild horses dragging the manuscript away from publication.
According to AVClub.com Blake says the book includes details of the tedium of looking at Keith Richards’ “scraggy, monkey-like bottom night after night.” He also bought a mansion while high on acid, and leapt onto a stallion that roared off “like it was a Ferrari.” And sure, those are the kinds of events that might be significant life events for the average human, but when you’ve forgotten more TV appearances than most people have watched in their entire lives, it’s just another decade or so of jaw-dropping experiences to be cast aside like so many empty eight balls. Blake says it’s unlikely we’ll see it any time soon, but he can’t confirm whether we’ll all get a similar chance to forget Jagger’s mid-80s solo career.
