Nearly two years after [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Keith Richards[/lastfm]‘ controversial memoir was released, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Rolling Stones[/lastfm] guitarist is publicly apologizing to band mate [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mick Jagger[/lastfm] for comments he made in the book.
In the autobiography, Richards portrayed Jagger in a less than flattering light, calling him “unbearable” among other things.
But in a new interview for an upcoming documentary about the band, it sounds as though the two music giants have made peace.
“As far as the book goes, it was my story and it was very raw, as I meant it to be, but I know that some parts of it and some of the publicity really offended Mick and I regret that,” says Richards.
For his part, Jagger says he understands that “looking back at any career you are bound to recall both the highs and the lows,” and there were indeed some lows between the two men.
“Time I reckon to move on,” he adds.
Says Richards, “Mick‘s right. He and I have had conversations over the last year of a kind we have not had for an extremely long time and that has been incredibly important to me.”
Amen to that – let the music continue…
