“Politics doesn’t require talent, intelligence, or good looks. Truly, someone like Donald Rumsfeld, a mediocre government functionary with no discernible talent, intelligence, or charm, is a greater international celebrity than Mick Jagger. Rumsfeld, despite being a has-been, is known in every corner of Asia, the Middle East, and Africa for his insanity and arrogance, while Jagger is admired by a mere couple hundred million music enthusiasts, huddled mostly in the First World.”
Ian F. Svenonius, Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group

“Depending on how you looked at it, Darren was our Mick Jagger (designated swaggering extrovert) to Simon's Keith Richards (quietly virtuosic, blatantly self-destructive).

“Spiderwoman stepped forward and said, "Oh, do give us a hint, just give us a glimmer." Mick turned to me and said, "We're the Glimmer Twins." Baptized on the equator, the Glimmer Twins is the name we used later for ourselves as producers of our own records.”

“Stoned Soup by Stewart Stafford

Keith Richards talks Brendan Behan,
Making soup, wrapped in a blanket,
While in a kitchen in County Cork,
Mick Jagger listens and laughs loudly.

Discussing the previous night’s gig,
Mick says the crowd was wonderful,
Keith agrees and says so was Charlie,
Keith’s lip cigarette jigs to each word.

Through choking plumes of smoke,
The soup is ready, Mick tries some,
His notable lips curl downwards fast,
He humours Keith and says it’s great.
