Mick Jagger won’t write an autobiography. The legendary English musician and leas vocalist from the rock back Rolling Stones band mate Keith Richards in 2010 released his own memoir called Life. But Jaggar says working on other projects is what he wants to do, and his fans can just check him out online.
”I think the rock ‘n’ roll memoir is a glutted market. I’d rather be doing something new. I’d rather be making new films, making new music, be touring. If someone wants to know what I did in 1965, they can look it up on Wikipedia without even spending any money.”
Other than his music, the seventy year old has his own production company called Jagged Films. Documentary maker Morgan Neville said:
”There’s virtually nobody on the planet who’s not gonna take the call from Mick Jagger, which as a producer is an incredible asset to have. It moves mountains, which is what a lot of producing is about.”
However, the ‘Brown Sugar’ hitmaker admits he still experiences rejection.
He told The Hollywood Reporter: ”It’s a bit like saying no in Japan. They don’t say no, directly. They say no indirectly.”
And Mick wishes people would understand he has other interests outside of music. He said:
”Normally, people want to talk to me about being onstage, and if they want to hear about the film thing they go, ‘Oh yeah’. But I’m not just interested in doing musical films.”
