Mick Jagger Makes David Petraeus Joke at Documentary Premiere

November 14, 2012 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

NY Post reports that Mick Jagger made a joke regarding the indiscretions of David Petraeus when he introduced the HBO documentary The Rolling Stones: Crossfire Hurricane at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City last night.

Jagger stated: “There’s a lot of change in America since we first came here. This film . . . takes you back to a younger, perhaps gentler, America. An America where only IBM and the military had computers. Where there [were] no smart phones . . . no e-mails. And a simpler America, where we didn’t read other people’s e-mails, so we didn’t know four-star generals were having affairs.”

Jagger’s guitarist Ronnie Wood later said, “The main thing is the music we’re making now is the good [bleep].”
