Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on touring Europe (1982):
Mick: “We don’t make any money is one of the reasons we don’t tour Europe frequently. And life is only so long… And – we just figured we should really go because if it’s gonna be (laughs) another 7 years, we may never go again. I mean, that’s a real – you’ve really got to face up to that (laughs). I mean, we’ll never go again, that’ll be the last time definitely we go to Europe, unless we go the year after. Not in this band, in this place, I mean… it’s impossible.”
Keith: “I need this to keep me young. When we started this band we thought we had about two or three years. Now it’s habit and it’s absolutely vital that it works on the road. We need constant contact with a living audience. We’re so excited about the prospect of doing Britain again after so long. Wherever we might make our home now, Britain is where our roots are.”
