Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on the Satanic Majesties album:
Mick Jagger: “Satanic Majesties had interesting things on it, but I don’t think any of the songs are very good. It’s a bit like Between The Buttons. It’s a sound experience, really, rather than a song experience. There’s 2 good songs on it: She’s A Rainbow, and 2,000 Light Years from Home. The rest of them are nonsense… I think we were just taking too much acid. We were just getting carried away, just thinking anything you did was fun and everyone should listen to it. The whole thing we were on acid…
Satanic Majesties was the mood of the time. You can’t play or write outside the mood of the times, unless you live on a mountain… In those times it was flowers, beads and stars on your face, that’s what it was. In fact, I’m rather fond of that album, and I wouldn’t mind doing something like that again… We were just obviously out to lunch. I’m saying this because I just heard it recently and realized how much I liked it. What surprised me was the comedic feeling and all the jokes and things we’d never dream of doing now”
Keith Richards: “It’s so unbelievable. It was so weird to make an album and not be on the road that it was totally unlike recording. I liked a few songs, like 2000 Light Years, Citadel and She’s a Rainbow, but basically I thought the album was a load of crap. That album was made under the pressure of the court cases and the whole scene that was going on in London at that time”
