Mick Jagger on the song’s homosexual nature of ‘When the Whip Comes Down’ (1978):
“There is one song that’s a straight gay song – ‘When the Whip Comes Down’ – but I have no idea why I wrote it. It’s strange – the Rolling Stones have always attracted a lot of men (laughs). That sounds funny, but they’re not all gay. And, of course, I have a lot of gay friends, but I suppose everyone does in New York City, and what’s that have to do with the price of eggs?… I sure hope the radio stations will play ‘When the Whip Comes Down.'”
