Sympathy For The Devil

‘WE don’t know if Mick Jagger inhaled the potent smoke wafting up from a Mexican fire. The Mail only tells us that the hit cost Mick a mere £1.

Lock up your grandmas

And it might prove to be a shrewd investment. As the Mail reports, Jagger has just had his soul cleansed by a Shaman.

A scene the Mail calls “bizarre” was enacted as Mick (sunglasses, cowboy hat, creased face) and his seven-year-old son Lucas (sunglasses, stress-free complexion, Mick’s seventh child by four different women) toured the ancient Mexican pyramids at Teotihuacan.

The shaman (bandana, lots of smoke), promised to purge the rocker’s soul of “bad energy”, using a powerful blend of branches, amulets and tobacco.

The Mail wonders how much smoke and trinkets it takes to cleanse the sprit of an old rocker like Mick. And while the rainforest burns, we note that the ceremony promises to bring love, work and good health.

Which, of course, can mean only one thing. Peel on the hipsters, plug in the band and order the Mars bars, the Rolling Stones are getting ready to tour again…’
