Mick Jagger about the Stones’ longevity and accomplishments (1984):
“Keith and I have been friends for a long time. Yes we were friends since we were 6 years old which, I’m not going to tell you, is a long time ago, more than 20 years… I’ve been friends with Charlie for over 20 years. It’s difficult to analyze why, you know, why us? You don’t know. And, as someone said to me, those friendships lasted over the other ones, you know, with women and all that. So the band’s been going on longer than any marriage or involvement I’ve been in… I’m not proud of achievements. Pride can come just before a fall, you know, and all that. I’m not particularly proud of – some of the things the Stones have done have been great, some have been rubbish. That’s the way life goes. That’s the lot – I chose it and I could have sort of got out of it at any time. But I’m still in there. And I wouldn’t be there if I didn’t… enjoy it.”
