Half a century later, in middle age, a similar quandary exists, only now the question is: Mick or Keef?
There is seemingly no middle ground in this matter – you are either a Mick Jagger man or a Keith Richards supporter.
(Keith said this week that Mick will never be able to write his autobiography – it would be full of “blank chapters” because there would be a lot of stuff the singer wanted left out.) Of course, this divide between ageing devotees of the two men has precious little to do with musical differences.
After all, no one can deny that the two precocious teenagers from Dartford, Kent, were, from the beginning, both huge R&B enthusiasts, both obsessive fans of Chuck Berry and both equally important in the mix that created the Rolling Stones.
He is the creator of the reedy, ironic English whine that cuts like a Stanley knife.
Rolling Stone magazine claims he is the 16th greatest rock-and-roll singer of all time.
Legjobb eredménye Grand Slam-tornákon az elődöntő, ahova három alkalommal sikerült bekerülnie, először az 1994-es Australian Openen, majd az 1995-ös Roland Garroson, végül 1996-ban Wimbledonban.
Az egyéni világranglistán 1995-ben a negyedik helyen is állt, amit egészen 2011-ig, a kínai Li Na Roland Garros-győzelméig egyedüli ázsiaiként mondhatott el magáról.
Egyéniben az első tornagyőzelmét 1992-ben szerezte Tokióban, az utolsót pedig 2009. születésnapja előtt, amivel ő az open era második legidősebb egyéni tornagyőztese Billie Jean King után.Jagger is famously fit, although he was once a heavy drug-user: he could not possibly have recorded the Sticky Fingers album, for example, if he had been clean.Richards is famously unfit, although I would bet a gram of coke to a sherbet fountain that nowadays he has a private gym in the basement of his Connecticut home. This is not just because I, along with others in the Jagger school, spent my teenage years in front of a mirror pretending I was him (something that Keef followers rarely did) but because Jagger is the public face of the Stones in the same way that David Cameron rather than Nick Clegg is the personification of the Coalition.Last modified: Tue Jan 2 2018; Machine Name: buxtehude Debian Bug tracking system Debbugs is free software and licensed under the terms of the GNU Public License version 2.The current version can be obtained from https://bugs.debian.org/debbugs-source/.
