Mick Jagger’s kid brother, musician Chris Jagger, has announced he’s writing his memoirs. While chatting The Daily Mail, Chris, now 73, said, “Mick and I share similar early influences, and our parents were central to that. Writing took longer than I anticipated. It was a lot harder than I thought. Writing doesn’t have to be all poetry. I’ve even got some recipes in there.” No date for the autobiography has been announced.
Mick appears on Chris’ new album, Mixing Up The Medicine, which drops on September 10th.
- Back in April, Mick Jagger, who reportedly gave back an advance for a memoir years ago, told BBC Radio, that although he had the time to complete a book during the pandemic — he ultimately passed.
- Regarding many of his peers penning their memoirs while homebound during the shutdown, Jagger explained, “I could’ve done that, yeah. It was a thing that people started doing, writing. I think in the ’80s I started it and I was offered a lot of money — the money was the seductive part of it! So, when I actually started to get into it I really didn’t enjoy it. . . reliving my life, to the detriment of living in the now. If you wanna write an autobiography, this is not a process you can just do in a week — it takes a lot out of you. It takes a lot of reliving emotions, reliving friendships, reliving ups and downs.”
