“Mick Can Screw Up Any Song”

“Charlie, Ronnie and I, all we do is go around being a safety net for Mick, really. Sometimes he’s way out on the edge of a stage and he’s got the beat totally wrong, he’s singing like some Chinese scale and then there’s Charlie and me looking at each other. ‘Oh, let’s pick it up and switch the beat’ and then Mick’s in. Mick can screw up any fucking song.” That’s Keith Richards, talking about Scorcese’s new Rolling Stones concert film, “Shine a Light.”
