Mick and Keith Make Up

Mick and Keith Make Up!

It was a feud that threatened to end a 50-year friendship… and break up the world’s greatest rock band, but Mick Jagger and Keith Richards recently revealed they had kissed and made up in a heart-to-heart meeting in New York.

The riff began after Keith took a literal "low blow" at Mick, 68, in his tell-all 2010 autobiography, Life. The book included a claim that the superstar singer had a “tiny todger.” Since then Sir Elton John and Pete Townshend have stepped up and insisted he was well endowed down below.

Now the pair, who met at Dartford railway station in Kent as teenagers, have agreed life’s too short to let the rift continue. Mick said, “In the 80s, Keith and I were not communicating very well.

“I got very involved with the business side, 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.’’

Keith, 68, added: “I know some parts of the book and some publicity really offended Mick and I regret that. Although we look like old codgers, we are still at bottom the boys on platform three at Dartford station.’’

Mick, “Er, actually, Keith, it was platform one.’’

Their reborn friendship could very well ensures a 50th anniversary tour. Bass player Bill Wyman, who quit in 1992, was involved in jamming sessions in London last December.
