Mick, on Dirty Work: “The Dirty Work album wasn’t that good. It was okay. It certainly wasn’t a great Rolling Stones album. The feeling inside the band was very bad, too. The relationships were terrible. The health was diabolical. I wasn’t in particularly good shape. The rest of the band, they couldn’t walk across the Champs Elysées, much less go on the road… Touring Dirty Work would have been a nightmare. It was a terrible period. Everyone was hating each other so much: there were so many disagreements. It was very petty; everyone was so out of their brains, and Charlie was in seriously bad shape. When the idea of touring came up, I said, I don’t think it’s gonna work. In retrospect I was 100% right. It would have been the worst Rolling Stones tour. Probably would have been the end of the band…
…If everything in the garden had been lovely it would have been very nice. But everything in the garden wasn’t lovely, it was fucking horrible and it would have taken a fucking amount of pruning to… Well, I just think that going on tour with the Stones the way the Stones were would have been a disaster, or a recipe of one. The band was not getting on at all. It was awful. The graphic experience to me of a band on tour not working was the Who’s last tour in 1982. When I saw that it really scared me and it remained with me seeing this real kind of hatred feeling….
…It was shorrible, you know, Pete Townshend being in another hotel and no one speaking. That gave me a real frisson and it was then that I realised that was no way the Stones would go out because it would have been exactly the same, probably worse. It would have been just a money-making tour. It wouldn’t have been a Stones tour, it would have been the big banana and I just couldn’t face that. We just got fed up with each other. You’ve got a relationship with musicians that depends on what you produce together. But when you don’t produce, you get bad reactions – bands break up. You get difficult periods, and that was one of them…”
