Keith Richards Talks About If He Thinks Mick Jagger Will Die!


Mick Jagger, frontman with the Rolling Stones, recently survived heart surgery with flying colours.

The 75-year-old musician was hospitalised for the keyhole surgery in New York a few months back.


The necessary procedure was to place a stent in Jagger’s heart and it meant that The Stones had to postpone their ‘No Filter’ US tour. Thankfully Jagger made a speedy recovery and the rockers are getting set to hit the road once again.

Speaking to the Toronto Sun, Keith discussed Mick Jagger’s health, “He went through it very easily. He’s in great shape — rocking. As I say, it seemed to be no problem at all really.”

Richards maintained that it’s not that much of a scare when it comes to the health status of members of the group.

As Alternative Nation observes, none of the ageing rockers are too worried about any sudden death! Giving a chuckle, Richards responded to the notion of Mick shuffling of the mortal coil:

“I don’t think so! ‘It was just, ‘Oh, Mick will be better.’ We’ll just wait around because there was no doubt that we’d soon pick it up. It just had to be done. So we did it.”

The legendary axeman also admitted his solo project made him respect what Jagger does more:

“Doing my time with the (backing band X-Pensive) Winos, yeah, it made me appreciate a lot more what Mick has to do and what a frontman has to do. So yeah, you live and learn, you know.”
