Keith Richards Says He Sometimes Despises Mick Jagger

December 3, 2012 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with Esquire (via NME), Keith Richards says that he sometimes “despises” Mick Jagger but still loves him like family.

He said: “You’ve got two very volatile guys who’ve been through a whole lot of stuff in their life and still somehow manage. Sometimes I despise the man, others, I love that man so much. It’s like your brother. I never had one, so he’s my brother. That’s the way it is, bless his heart.

Jagger, meanwhile, commented n the idea of being “married” to Richards. He said: “People say the stupidest things and that’s one of the dumbest because it’s completely different from being married when you work with someone. I work with Keith and I’ve known him for a long time.

Richards then revealed how much The Rolling Stones mean to him. He added: “What is there in life? There’s the air you breathe and the food you eat… and then there’s The Rolling Stones. They’ve just been there forever, for them, from their point of view. The world wouldn’t be complete without The Rolling Stones!

The Stones played the second of their two London concerts last week and were joined by Eric Clapton and Florence Welch at the O2 Arena. They move on to shows in New York and New Jersey later this month.
