Mick, on the Stones’ reaction to his future first solo album (1984):
“As soon as I was planning on doing it , I told the band, and I said, ‘Well do you mind if I take this time out?’… I think that the Stones didn’t want it to be a shit record: Mick, don’t make a shit record, because that’s going to reflect on us. And I said, No, if it’s a shit record – if I think it’s shit, and CBS thinks it’s shit – it won’t go out! I don’t think they were furious about it, because we talked about it. I talked about it with Keith, and he said, Hey, if you want to do it, go ahead. Don’t forget you’re taking a chance. I said, Well, yeah. You know, you’ve got to take chances in life. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”
