Who The Fuck Is MICK JAGGER? A Man Who Was Knighted SIR 20 Years Ago Today

14 June 2022

Back in 1975 Keef Richards was so fed up with ballerina Mick Jagger that he got
him a t-shirt made with the question Who The Fuck Is Mick Jagger printed on it.

It became a hot selling item for clothing manufacturer back then, but also when
Jagger
was knighted SIR 20 years ago today in Queen’s Birthday Honours. The Queen
wasn’t present. Story goes that she didn’t like the fact that a rolling stone became a Sir.

C’mon Elizabeth it’s only rock and roll,
but we know you don’t like it…

It’s all over by now. Touring again this year…

Sounds Like Xmas When MARIANNE FAITHFULL & KEITH RICHARDS Sing A Country Lullaby…

2 December 2020

Back in 2008 sixties pinup Marianne Faithfull recorded an album of covers,
titled Easy Come, Easy Go, in duet with Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright, Cat Power,
Kate & Anna McGarrigle
and several more artists.

One take that stands out to my ears is the version of Sing Me Back Home,
a charming lullaby by the late country singer Merle Haggard (1937-2016).
Marianne did this one with her first Rolling Stone lover, Keith Richards.

They sound lovely, they sound Xmassy

The original

Easy Come, Easy Go in full…
