Gently Rock

‘THE Rolling Stones are medical marvels. Seemingly pickled from within, they continue to shock just by functioning.

‘I can’t give no…sa-tis-fac-tion…’

At a combined age of 245 years, we expect them to rock, but more backwards and forwards than over a huge stadium stage.

Looking at the Mail’s picture of Mick Jagger pulling his famous lips into a wide-mouthed grimace as he struts unaided around a stage, we are reminded of how a chicken runs around after its neck has been broken.

But the Mail was impressed with the performance as The Stones started yet another tour, kicking off their 18-month Bigger Bang Tour in Boston.

Oh dear, excuse our tittering. We’ve just read in the Sun what Keith Richards has to say.

In its undiluted form, Richards’s comment on Mick Jagger runs: “His c**k is on the end of his nose. And a very small one at that. Huge balls. Small c**k. Ask Marianne Faithfull.”

The Sun fails to do as bidden, and sparing Faithfull’s blushes instead wonders in its lead editorial if Mick hasn’t just worn it out.

Or has finally started do what no legendary rocker should and fade away…’
