I think that's exactly it Maxlugar. Mick did all the stuff Brian and Keith did (except heroin I guess), but he always kept himself and the band organized, which no mean feat. When you look at those old clips and interviews you see Brian's ambivalence and shakiness, Keith's tentativeness, but Mick is always completely confident, with it, enthusiastic, and happy.
