In a recent interview, The Rolling Stones icons Mick Jagger and Keith Richards talked about the band’s 1973 album ‘Goats Head Soup‘ and Jagger confirmed that he had some inappropriate behaviors aimed to promote the album.
The legendary rock band The Rolling Stones released their 13th studio album, ‘Goats Head Soup,’ on August 31, 1973. Known for its unusual name and cover, the album reached number one in various lists both in the U.K. and U.S.
Recently, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards joined an interview with Rolling Stone magazine to talk about the iconic album, ‘Goats Head Soup’ whose deluxe edition has been released.
In the interview, Richards mentioned they had to overcome some struggles during the writing period of the album since the band members were all over the place by stating:
“When we cut ‘Exile,’ we were still in each other’s pockets. By the time of ‘Goats Head,’ Mick had married Bianca. Charlie was living in France. In other words, we had become exiles. We were all over the place. Mick and I had to learn to write stuff apart.”
Richards continued by praising the talent of his dear friend Mick Jagger:
“A lot of tracks weren’t worked out much before we got in there. Some of them are maybe an hour old. One of my favorite songs is ‘Winter’, a Mick beauty. I always liked the way Mick picked out those pretty melodies around the tunes. He was very good at that sort of thing.”
Furthermore, Mick Jagger revealed that he was actually saying some inappropriate things in order to promote ‘Goats Head Soup’ and added:
“I say stupid things like that when I’m promoting albums. You gotta take that with a pinch of salt.”
