Mick Jagger was asked what he believes is the secret for the constant influx of new and younger Stones fans filling the arenas and stadiums around the world: “Well, the older ones that’ve got all the money bring the younger ones and pay for them, and the younger ones say, ‘alright.’ That, I mean it’s very gratifying. I mean, I think they, a lot of times, y’know, they’ve heard about you through their parents, or their older brothers or sisters, or something like that.”
- Keith Richards was asked who out of all the Stones has been most itching to get back on the road: “I’m always itching, so you can put me at a definite Number One. But, I’d say that there’s a certain kind of collective itch (laughs) that goes on eventually. And we all sort of look at each other and say, ‘Well, you up for it?’ And then we start scratching. Y’know, it’s one of those things. Nobody seems to make a real decision and say: ‘We’re gonna do this or that.’ It sort of a look in the eye, really, ‘and say, ‘Come on, let’s go (laughs)'”
