Rolling Stone Keith Richards announced on Twitter Wednesday that he had apologized to bandmate Mick Jagger after suggesting the famed frontman should have a vasectomy.
“Mick’s a randy old bastard,” Richards told WSJ Magazine in an interview when asked about the Jagger having an eighth child at 73. “It’s time for the snip—you can’t be a father at that age. Those poor kids!”
Jagger welcomed his most recent child Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger with 31-year-old girlfriend Melanie Hamrick in December 2016. She joins Jagger’s eight other children, the eldest being 47-year-old Karis Jagger.
Well, Richards is now apologizing for his quip about his longtime bandmate being a “randy old bastard,” calling it “completely out of line” in a tweet.
“I have of course apologised to him in person,” Richards added.
I deeply regret the comments I made about Mick in the WSJ which were completely out of line. I have of course apologised to him in person.
