The 'Rolling Stones' rocker has flatly refused to turn his life into a book.
Mick Jagger has once again refused to write a memoir to detail the events of his colourful life to the world. The Rolling Stones' frontman has explained that he has lots of other projects he'd rather focus on and would "rather be doing something new" than revisiting memories from long ago.
Mick Jagger Is Not Planning A Memoir. Full Stop.
The 70 year-old rocker bluntly told THR that a memoir wasn't something he'd want to make money from: "If someone wants to know what I did in 1965, they can look it up on Wikipedia without even spending any money," he said. "I think the rock'n'roll memoir is a glutted market," Jagger revealed, adding "I'd rather be making new films, making new music, be touring."
The veteran rock star, who with The Rolling Stones last year gave Glastonbury Festival one of its greatest ever headliners, said that he will not be following of the footsteps of bandmate Keith Richards and his Life autobiography. Despite having joined the ranks of the septuagenarian rockers last year, Jagger is showing no signs of slowing down.
The Rolling Stones Rocker Is Too Busy To Sit And Think About The Past.
Instead, Mick is busier than ever, producing the James Brown biopic Get On Up, producing Last Train to Memphis, an upcoming Elvis Presley biopic, collaborating with Martin Scorsese on a new, Breaking Bad's George Mastras-penned rock 'n' roll HBO series and co-producing the "family drama" Tiny Problems of White People, in which he'll also act.
That's not even all Jagger's planning either: apparently also on the horizon for the singer is an acting and producers role in the coming-of-age feature Fresh Tears, producing and starring as a "Rupert Murdoch-esque media mogul" in the feature film Tabloid and executive producing a TV and Broadway musical adaptation based on 20 Feet from Stardom, the Oscar-nominated documentary about backing singers.
Luckily For Fans, It Looks Like There'll Be More Music & Touring Too.
Incredibly, even with his healthy-looking timetable for the next few years, Jagger grumbles about when he gets refused by studio execs: "They don't say no, directly. They say no indirectly," he griped. However, 20 Feet from Stardom director Morgan Neville says he thinks it would be ludicrous for anyone to refuse the Stones singer: "There's virtually nobody on the planet who's not gonna take the call from Mick Jagger," said Neville. "It moves mountains."
