I'm definitely pro Sir Mick. It's not like King William (son of Princess Diana) won't be doing cocaine off Christy Turlington's ass in the near future. Who cares what Sir Mick's past is. He deserves it more than most.

I wouldn't put it past Prince William to do exactly as you said. That kid and his brother are getting out of control. Since Mick is now a 'Sir' does that mean he could be in line for the throne (maybe a million down on the list - but still in line)?

Rocker Sir Mick Jagger has fallen ill with laryngitis - forcing his band The Rolling Stones to suspend a concert in the Spanish holiday resort town of Benidorm. The concert was set for Monday and was part of the Stones' Forty Licks tour. It had been expected to attract some 30,000 fans to the Foeits Sports Stadium. The concert will reportedly be rescheduled for September 19. The Stones have already played sold-out shows in Madrid, Barcelona and Bilbao as part of the tour.

Rolling Stone Sir Mick Jagger is begging Britain's Queen not to release images of footage of him being knighted later this month - because he's terrified of upsetting bandmate Keith Richards even more. Hardman rocker Richards was furious when the honor was announced last year and hit out again this week, dubbing the frontman "ludicrous" and the knighthood "paltry". He ranted in a magazine interview, "It's not what the Stones are about. I thought it was ludicrous to take one of those gongs from the establishment when they did their very best to throw us in jail. I don't want to step out on stage with someone wearing a f***ing coronet and sporting the old ermine. I told Mick, 'It's a f***ing paltry honor." Now Jagger is so scared of upsetting him further, he's trying to stop pictures of him receiving his investiture from Queen Elizabeth II from escaping her London home, Buckingham Palace. A band insider says, "It's a really, really sore issue. Mick has asked the Palace that no images of him being knighted are made public - solely because he's worried about Keith doing his nut if he sees it on telly."

You can call him Sir Mick

Mick Jagger sealed his place among Britain's establishment Friday, accepting a knighthood from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.
"IT'S VERY NICE to have honors given to you as long as you don't take it all too seriously," said Jagger, the 60-year-old prancing frontman for the Rolling Stones. He sported black suede and leather sneakers for the occasion.

He laughed off the abuse he has taken from fellow Stone Keith Richards, who has called the knighthood an "(expletive) disgrace."

"I think he would probably like to get the same honor himself," Jagger told reporters outside the palace.

"It's like being given an ice cream - one gets one and they all want one. It's nothing new. Keith likes to make a fuss."

Jagger was accompanied at the ceremony by his 92-year-old father Joe and daughters Karis, 32, and Elizabeth, 19.

So does that mean he has succession to the throne? If everyone else ahead of him were to die in some terrorist attack or something - would it become King Mick?

ROLLING STONES BUST IS SUBJECT OF NEW FILM

HBO is planning to produce a film based on the 1967 arrest and trial of Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the London Independent on Sunday reported. Although no actors have yet been cast in the roles of the two British rockers, the role of the defense attorney, Michael Havers, will be played by Havers' son Nigel, who took the idea for the film to writer-producer Nick Fisher. Fisher told the newspaper that the trial represented a life-changing experience for the elder Havers, one of the country's most expensive attorneys, then "at the pinnacle of the establishment."

Stones Hit the Road Again

Veteran rockers The Rolling Stones are heading out on the road again after announcing another world tour which will net them millions. The British supergroup will kick off dates at baseball mecca Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, on August 21 before heading off around the globe to play a mixture of club shows, arenas and stadiums. The group staged a similar tour in 2002 to 2003 and created a range of live concepts for the different-sized venues. The Stones are also putting the finishing touches to a new album, which means the planned tour will be the first time the group has played dates to support new material since the 1997/1998 Bridges To Babylon tour. The group's longtime promoter Michael Cohl says, "We're announcing we'll play the world, but right now the only thing that's set is somewhere around 40 shows in North America." The Rolling Stones were the top grossing touring act of 2003, ringing up just under $300 million from 116 shows.

Film Alleges That Stones Founder Jones Was Murdered

A British film about Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones that suggests that Jones was murdered in 1969 has the backing of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, according to the film's director, Stephen Woolley. The film, named Stoned and shown at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday, is reportedly based on three books about Jones's mysterious death. (Numerous writers have taken Jagger and Richards to task for not attempting to rescue Jones when he spiraled into drug and alcohol addiction prior to his death. "Brian was a child," Richards remarked after Jones's death.) Woolley said at Cannes on Friday that he had located a woman who was at the rock star's home on the night of his death and had new evidence.

JAGGER ROCKS BUSH, RICE: 'HOW COME YOU'RE SO WRONG, MY SWEET NEO-CON'

"You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite/ You call yourself a patriot. Well, I think your are full of sh*t!... How come you're so wrong, my sweet neo-con."

Ready to drop in the coming weeks, a new Bush-bashing tune from the ROLLING STONES: "Sweet Neo Con."

"It is direct," Mick Jagger says with a laugh to fresh editions of NEWSWEEK.

"Keith [Richards] said, 'It's not really metaphorical.' I think he's a bit worried because he lives in the U.S." Jagger explains. "But I don't."

The full lyric also mocks National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice.

News about the song surfaced a few weeks ago with many expecting that it would not make the finally cut on the new CD, A BIGGER BANG.

Jagger once vowed not to comment on the political process in the United States.

"I feel very much at home in America. I've spent half my adult life here. I have many personal feelings. But I'm from the school that considers it impolite to comment on other people's elections. Now if I had the vote - and I should have, as I pay so much in taxes - I would have a lot to say."

Now with the elections long over, the tongue is unleashed!

The band kicks off its world tour in Boston on Aug. 21.

Street-fighting 'Neo-Con' By Edna Gundersen, USA TODAY

Sweet Neo-Con, Mick Jagger's scathing indictment of U.S. foreign policy, isn't just rankling conservatives. It rattled a usually unflappable firebrand.


The song, due Sept. 6 on the Rolling Stones' A Bigger Bang, wasn't warmly embraced by guitarist Keith Richards. (Related story: Four rockers define Stones age)


"I didn't want this to be a diversionary storm," he says. "I thought potentially it would detract attention from the rest of the album and be seen as cheap publicity. We don't need that. But I told Mick, 'If you really feel like you want to say that, I'll back you all the way.'


"If I'm going to write a song, politicians are the last subject I think of. Neo-Con is like an old headline. Nobody will know what it means in 10 years. I like the oblique angles like Sweet Black Angel or Street Fighting Man. This one is a bit of a finger-pointer, but what's wrong with a poke in the eye?"


Accusing the administration of hypocrisy, the song asserts, "It's liberty for all, democracy's our style/Unless you are against us, then it's prison without trial."


Jagger isn't dodging the lyrics' thrust. "I have my opinions, which I've stated in the tune. Maureen Dowd is no more qualified to have opinions than I am."


Jagger composed the song quickly, then watched jaws drop as he bounced it off bandmates and producer Don Was.


"Isn't that really what pop music should be about?" he says.


The Neo-controversy might never have ensued if more bands had topical rants in the marketplace. "Perhaps they don't because everyone says, 'How dare he have an opinion?' " Jagger says. "But whose opinion do you listen to? People on TV who have no qualifications."


Bang also offers social commentary in Rain Fall Down and Back of My Hand, but the joys and pitfalls of romance dominate.


"People can understand and empathize with love and broken hearts," Jagger says. "Writing a whole album about politics would not be a good idea, but I specifically tried to encompass a broader set of subjects."
