Veteran rocker gives up on autobiography

You’d have thought that as the lead singer of The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger would have a few stories to tell.

But the 63-year-old reckons that reliving his life is so tedious that he bored himself trying to write his autobiography.

‘I was offered a large sum of money, which I found tempting and I started writing,’ he said. ‘I was sitting around talking endlessly about the past, living in it. And I found it rather dull.

‘I’d love to find another form to do it in. A book form, but not in the accepted showbiz memoir.’
