Mick Jagger about rock music (1981):
“I don’t feel connected with bands like the Clash, the bands that still play every night. I can only see them as repeats of everything that happened before. I think it’s a bit unfortunate, too, but I think that no one would disagree with me. Most musicians in fact do agree with me. Bands like the Selecter and the Specials, which are good bands, are repeats too. I mean, I saw bands like that in 1959. It’s the same old thing done slightly differently. I like some of the shows I’ve seen. I liked the Pink Floyd show – better, anyway, than Elvis Costello’s. But I haven’t been interested in rock for years – I mean interested in it in the way of wanting to talk about it. It’s not really the 100% of everything I’m interested in. I guess, I never have been.”
