: Knee Jerk??? ....Not too many guys can drive consecutive girlfriends to this, whatever the circumstances.
Exactly MY point when I said "he's Mick Jagger." I'm not sticking up for him, but the standard rules just do not apply. Like it or not he's above the law.
: Further evidence that his lyrics are intentionally mysogenistic:
: 1. He’ll compromise on just about everything else to get a hit EXCEPT his beloved women as golddiggers/prostitute theme (ie. Selling out rock for pop, revamping musical packaging-computerized drum rolls etc.)
Heeeeyyyyy.....there's a guy I'd really like you to meet...you two would hit it off like gangbusters. I'm not mentioning any names but his initials are "The Storm".
: 2. (In terms of sexy vocals, my vote would have been 1 Elvis 2 bing crosby 3 mick)
oh. bing crosby. ok.
: Regarding his attitude toward men, off-hand I can’t think of any songs he’s written which would be considered…male misogynistic???
Dirty Work. The whole album. (hehehe) But there are also plenty of examples of him being a sensitive guy; "Out Of Tears", "Already Over Me", "Time Waits For No One", "Angie", "Wild Horses", christ there's a truckload of stuff that DOESN'T make him sound like The Horned One.
: Jerry's equally bad behavior??
Yeah, I have to agree with Dandy on this one. Jerry is a press whore and makes it almost seem like they deserve each other sometimes.
: : : I would imagine that when you're the best at what you do, it's easy to be an egotist. My only defense of Mick is simply to say : he's Mick Jagger. Jerry knew that when she "married" him
: Finally!!! Thank you FPM, at last there's a post I can agree with. IMHO the best way for Mick to write lots more hit songs is to see a psychiatrist first.
Ha! I think going to a shrink & solving his sexual peccadillos would ruin him. The Stones run on Mick's ego. If he didn't have a pathologic NEED for ALL of the adulation and attention in the universe, he wouldn't still be onstage. I hope he never turns into a "nice guy".
