If anybody had told me a few months ago that I’d be editing a magazine—and one all about the Stones at that—well, I’d have said they were plain crazy! But, here I am doing just that and
loving every page of it.
The idea, you see, is that one of us should be editor each month. Not to do all the work, we’ve got a live-wire staff to do that, but to kick in with ideas and choose the pics and letters and that sort of thing. And the editor of the month will get a big portrait of himself specially drawn for the centre pages, which means that by No. 5 you’ll have a complete set of Stones’ portraits.
I like writing, you know. Especially song-writing. I hope to do a Iot more composing this year with Keith. He and I seem to work naturally together. Of course most of the stuff we write isn’t suitable for the Rolling Stones but we both get a terrific kick out of hearing what other artists do with it. If you have ever tried to write a song you’ll know what I mean.
All of us like receiving your letters. We soon get on to Annabelle, that’s our Fan Club secretary, if she doesn’t send them through regularly. And now a lot of them can be published in our own magazine. It’ll also help us to keep in touch with you. We’re so busy these days tearing around all over the place that it’s good to know there’s one place we can keep in regular contact.
Hope you like the first edition of our book.
So long for now,

I think Mick sounds VERY mature here as opposed to how he was in person back then. He’s also A LOT more mature now too!! I wish they’d come to Toronto one more time. I MUST see them one more time in this life. So, PLEASE, pass this along to the group, BEGGING them to come to Toronto, Canada, even though I’m sure they don’t have good memories of that place! LOL Just teasing. That’s all done and I’m trying to learn from you guys now, on how you kicked the habit!!
