MONTAUK 1975: MICK JAGGER CUTS HIS ARM

It was May 1975 and the Stones were staying at Andy Warhol’s Montauk house for tour rehearsals. Mick suffered severe cuts on his right forearm after pushing it through a glass window at a restaurant in Montauk, Long Island, New York. After a rehearsal with the Rolling Stones at director Paul Morrissey’s house, Jagger was leaving Gosman’s restaurant with Atlantic Records chairman Ahmet Ertegun when the accident occurred, and he was rushed to Southampton Hospital, where he was administered 20 stitches, but the Rolling Stones’ North American tour proceeded in two weeks, as planned. Other reports is he punched the window. At Jagger’s request, photographer Annie Leibovitz snapped a photo of the stitch-ed up wound.
