Keith Richards Apologizes to Mick Jagger for Comments in ‘Life’

The Rolling Stones will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2012 by publishing an expansive photo book, releasing a new, in-depth documentary, all while pushing a reunion tour off until 2013.

Conducting interviews for the currently untitled documentary appears to be very therapeutic for some members of the band, including Keith Richards, who apologized for comments he made about frontman Mick Jagger in his book, Life.

In Richards’ award-winning memoir, he made several derogatory comments about his Glimmer Twin, which included taking a little jab at his manhood. Jagger was obviously upset, and Richards wishes the raw nature of his book didn’t cut so deep.

“Some parts of it and some of the publicity really offended Mick,” says Richards, as reported by Rolling Stone. “And I regret that.”

The exchange between the two also included the distance that grew between the dynamic songwriting pair during the ’80s.

“In the 1980s for instance Keith and I were not communicating very well,” says Jagger. “I got very involved with the business side of the Stones, mainly because I felt no one else was interested, but it’s plain now from the book that Keith felt excluded, which is a pity. Time I reckon to move on.”

    Never even was aware of trouble between the two legends. Glad to see theirs a reconciliation (That thought of The Stones and the Beach Boys playing together one day for charity–a 100 year (plus) of rock and holl music history celebration on stage would be phenominal and music history in the making). I think people would pay (donate) to see that one day.
