Sir Mick Jagger - Mick Jagger Cracks Jokes In Surprise Letterman Appearance

Rocker Sir Mick Jagger poked fun at incarcerated producer Phil Spector and made light of his lack of profits from Maroon 5's hit song Moves Like Jagger during a special appearance on America's The Late Show With David Letterman on Tuesday (11Dec12).

The Rolling Stones frontman thrilled viewers as he stopped by the programme's New York studio to recite Letterman's daily Top 10 countdown, and shared his lessons learned from a lifetime of rocking.

Among the Top 10 List of Things Mick Jagger Learned From 50 Years in Rock 'n' Roll were, "Nobody wants to hear anything from your new album," and, "Before shouting 'Hi Seattle', make sure you're in Seattle".

Jagger also made a tongue-in-cheek joke about Spector, who was sentenced to 19 years to life behind bars following his conviction for murdering actress Lana Clarkson at his Alhambra, California home in 2003, quipping, "Never take relationship advice from Phil Spector".

The singer also laughed off the huge success of the Maroon 5 track, which makes reference to his famous dance moves, saying, "You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having moves like Jagger".

His other pieces of advice included, "Be considerate of other hotel guests - trash your room by 10pm", and concluded with, "You start out playing rock 'n' roll so you can have sex and do drugs, but you end up doing drugs so you can still play rock 'n' roll and have sex!"
