"Mick Jagger's" response to the Keith Richards book

A really good fictional reply to Keith from Mick on Keith’s book. It’s long but worth it I think. Print it out and read it on the way home.

Takes the line in the Rolling Stone review of the book about “I wonder what Mick would say about having to deal with a junkie in the band” and expounds on it.

I haven’t read the book yet but from everything I’ve read about it, I have to wonder “why now”? Why not put it out after they are all dead? I’m not getting what Keith is trying to accomplish and a lot of it sounded rather bitchy to me. And I thought Mick was supposed to be the bitch! Ah well, just another turn in the saga that is the Rolling Stones.
