Mick Jagger knew when David Bowie was copying him, because Bowie would tell him outright. Jagger tells Rolling Stone Bowie would steal a dance move and tell Jagger it was one of his. Bowie would give him a hug and Jagger could feel Bowie looking down the collar of his shirt to see what label he was wearing. Jagger’s favourite memory of Bowie was doing “Dancing in the Street” together. They recorded the song and the video in one day. Jagger says the video is “hilarious” and it’s “stupid” that the song was the only thing they ever collaborated on.
Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull will never write an autobiography because he hasn’t done anything except make music. Anderson says he’s the “most boring uncle you never had.” He says he’s severely lacking in debauchery and his only vices are alcohol and cigarettes. He says he never did hard drugs because he’s a “scaredy cat” and was afraid he’d have an addictive personality. Anderson also finds it “incredibly dreary and boring” when other people get high around him. So, why not write a book about those people? Anderson says it’s wrong to make money dishing other people’s secrets.
