The other members of The Rolling Stones have commented on Monday’s apparent suicide in New York of Mick Jagger‘s girlfriend, designer L’Wren Scott, which has prompted them to postpone their tour Down Under. That leg of the 14 on Fire tour was set to start tonight in Perth, Australia.
Keith Richards: “No-one saw this coming. Mick’s always been my soul brother and we love him… We’re thick as thieves and we’re all feeling for the man. We really hate to disappoint our fans, but we’ll see everyone really soon.”
Ronnie Wood: “This is such terrible news and right now the important thing is that we are all pulling together to offer Mick our support and help him through this sad time. Without a doubt we intend to be back out on that stage as soon as we can.”
Charlie Watts: “Needless to say we are all completely shocked, but our first thought is to support Mick at this awful time. We intend to come back to Australia and New Zealand as soon as it proves possible.”
