Slate Publishes Fictional Response from Mick Jagger

A Slate article created a fictional voice for Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger to respond to Keith Richards‘ memoir, Life.

Jagger’s imaginary manuscript includes the following observations: “Why did he write it? Or, rather, having decided to write it all down, why did he devote so much of it to carping about me? Well, he’s not talking about me, really. He’s just trying to get my attention, I think, in the end. The remaining part of the rancor comes from the fact that he knows he lost me, many years ago.”

The Jagger highlights Richards’ unprofessional behavior throughout the years and talk about the band’s long history.  Would you read Jagger’s real memoir? Leave your response in the comments section.

Johnny Depp Narrates Keith Richards’ Audiobook

Johnny Depp reads in the audiobook version of Keith Richards‘ memoir, Life.

The audiobook will also feature readings by musician Joe Hurley and The Rolling Stones guitarist himself.  Both the memoir and the audiobook will be released tomorrow.

Hurley had this statement: “It was a privilege to help tell his story … When you read the book, you feel that Keith’s sitting in a favourite armchair, reflecting, and sharing his wild ride, his life, with just you. The same sense you get from a great singer, he is singing in your ear, no one else.”

Over at The Huffington Post, you can take a Google Maps trip through Richards’ memoir.
