“He’s full of piss; someone has to extract it,” Keith Richards explains of his own best practices in handling the ginormous bladder that is bandmate Mick Jagger’s ego. Marriages that last are because the choice to do the work has been made, and the Rolling Stones jumped the broom in 1962. Whoa.
Over the years Richards has nicked down Jagger’s ego by mocking his love of royalty and calling him a “dictator.” But always with love.
Richards is pimping his new memoir Life in which he tells all about his lifelong bud’s out of control ego, and told the BBC the behavior “started to annoy me and then slowly enraged me.” So how did he avoid splitsville? Decades have showed him that “nobody has the perfect marriage.” — PopSmarts
