Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones has refused to have his long-lost memoirs published, as he can’t remember writing them
Sir Mick Jagger has denied permission to have an autobiography that he wrote published, because he can’t remember writing it. The book was written in the 1980s, but seems to have been lost for nearly three decades.
According to publisher John Blake, the manuscript was given to him three years ago. In his quest to publish the memoirs, Blake contacted Jagger’s agent who told him that the singer was interested in having it published. Telling the publisher that he wanted to write a foreword. However, The Rolling Stones’ frontman changed his mind and washed his hands of the project.
Blake has described the manuscript as being “a very sweet affectionate memoir.”
Continuing: “It is the rock ‘n’ roll equivalent of the Dead Seas Scrolls.”
Adding: “It’s a little masterpiece, a 75,000 word time capsule. But you may never see it.”
